Consultation has now concluded for the Frank Nichols Reserve upgrades.

Frank Nichols Reserve upgrades were completed in December 2021.

The upgrades included:

  • removal of ageing climbing net, rotary swing and helicopter
  • a new senior play elements to complement the existing junior play equipment on Sanderling Drive
  • a new shelter
  • picnic facilities
  • water bubbler
  • planting
  • play elements.

Community input

When Council sought feedback on the Frank Nichols Reserve upgrade between 15 March and 30 April 2021, the community told us that some of the key issues we should consider in the area were pedestrian park access, pathway connectivity, shade and nature -themed play spaces.

The project team responded by including the following elements into the design plans:

  • footpath connections along Lilley Road Warner
  • pedestrian/cycle/scooter loop path
  • nature-inspired play equipment
  • additional shade trees.

Council would like to thank the local community for their valuable feedback and involvement in the consultation process.

Construction of the new playground was partly funded by the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCIP). The LRCIP funding enables Council to fast-track the delivery of almost $7.5 million worth of shovel-ready projects around the region, including construction of Frank Nichols playground.

Future Works

Council will undertake a second stage of works on the southern end of the park in future. Feedback from the first round of consultation will be used to inform the plans. To stay informed about this project, register by clicking ‘+Follow’ at the top of the page.
