Olives Reserve Playground Upgrade

The votes are in - Playground Design Option 2 has been chosen!

The City of South Perth is upgrading the playground in the northern end of Olives Reserve and would like your help to choose the new design to replace the existing equipment. We have shortlisted four options that meet our criteria for things like safety, quality, play value and site constraints and would like to know which one you and your children like the best.

The playground upgrade works will include:

  • The removal of all existing equipment, rubber softfall under the swing and the shade structure
  • A new shade structure over the main play equipment
  • New equipment installed in the same location as the old equipment
  • New sand softfall under the new swing
