Campaspe Shire Council is seeking community ideas for how the Hopwood Garden's playground might look in the future.
Campaspe Shire Council is looking for its younger residents to share their ideas for a central Echuca playground.
The council will host two community consultations on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning to seek information on the playground at Hopwood Gardens, near the Port of Echuca.
The playground is set to be replaced in 2013-14 as part of the council’s Asset Renewal Program and Playground Strategy.
Mayor Ian Maddison said the council was keen to hear from residents about what they would like to the see in the playground.
‘‘Council is conducting an extensive consultation program to give the community an opportunity to have their say about what this popular playground might look like in the future,’’ Cr Maddison said.
‘‘We’ll be talking to families, user groups and school children to find out the type of play experience, equipment and theme they would like for the playspace.’’
Consultation sessions will be at Hopwood Gardens on Friday between 3.30pm and 5pm and Saturday between 10am and 11.30am.
Cr Maddison said families, user groups and children can share their ideas at the sessions or by filling out a questionnaire.
‘‘Children will be encouraged to use pictures, provide drawings or write down what they would like,’’ he said.
Council staff will collate community feedback before presenting a concept plan for public comment.
