Have your say on new splash park and playground for Doreen

Have your say on new splash park and playground for Doreen

Friday, November 17, 2023

The City of Whittlesea will soon be home to an exciting new play space, with a new splash park and playground to be built in Doreen.

Council is currently in the planning stage for the upgrade of Hilltop Park, and is asking residents for their feedback on a draft concept plan and the play experiences they would like to see included.

In addition to a new playground and splash park, the draft plan also proposes new public toilets, an extended car park, landscaping, and new lighting.

City of Whittlesea Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson encouraged the community to have their say and said their feedback will help guide the design.

“This park will provide families with a fantastic new recreation space locally. The splash pad and larger playground will inspire play and imagination for children. We invite the community to provide feedback on the play and water play experiences to help shape the future of this exciting space in Doreen.”

Council will incorporate community feedback into the concept and share the draft plan with the community in early 2024.

Consultation is open until Monday 18 December.

This project will be delivered by the City of Whittlesea and supported by the Federal Government through the Investing in Our Communities Program, and the Victorian Government through the Better Parks and Playgrounds Program and the Community Support Fund.
