Sixth Avenue Reserve Playground Ascot Park
City of Marion have started construction of Sixth Avenue Reserve Playground in Ascot Park! Due to be completed in early 2018, the playground will feature highlights such as water play, a shaded sand pit, plenty of climbing options, an elevated slide mound, a basket swing, a spinning dish and heaps of nature elements with boulders, logs, timber and pebbles. The playground has been designed to reflect the adjacent Scouts SA group and their connection to the park, with the Scout’s emblem influencing the layout of pathway access and equipment.
There will be opportunities for accessible play for all by the inclusion of raised sand and water play and rubber soft fall access to the basket swing and slide mound. With additional seating, a new shelter, BBQ and picnic tables as well as a drinking fountain completes the new design layout.
Buffer planting to Allison Street, the carpark and western boundary will assist in separating the playground from the adjacent roadways, whilst the removal of the fence to Allison Street will increase connectivity to the local community. The disabled carpark adjacent the southern entrances assists with all abilities access to the reserve.
Sixth Avenue Reserve Playground in Ascot Park will be completed in early 2018. Carparks are located at the southern end on Sixth Avenue.
