Through community consultation the Greater Green Island Community Network have been made aware of the need for a playground for 0-6 year olds in the Green Island suburb. The DCC and RSA are excited about the project. Both organizations are supportive of the Green Island Memorial Gardens to be the site of a playground and recreational areas for other age groups.
We currently have reached the total funding required to start the development.
Thank you to the amazing community fund-raising efforts and donations thus far from:
Community members voiced the need for a fenced playground with seating, a swing, a slide and some multi-play equipment.
Various designs for the multi-play equipment was shown at community events, in Freshchoice and on Social Media where children and adults voted for their favourite. As a result the train design was the most popular. With 1359 votes in total. 781 for the train vote in the picture above.
The Greater Green Island Community Workers completed funding applications and had regular meetings with the DCC in order to gain the funding required to build the Greater Green Island Community Recreation Area.
The official opening of the Recreation Area will be the 26th October at 3.30pm. All welcome.
