We're investing to refresh the play area at Southview. Earlier this year we asked your views about how we could best improve it and we used your feedback to inform a design brief. 

We asked what equipment would you like to see and the top 5 chosen were:

1. Swings                        59%

2. Climbing Frame          51%

3. Slide                            48%

4. Zip Line                       39%

5. Roundabout               21%

Thanks to your responses all submitted designs contain at least this equipment as well as some sensory and inclusive equipment.

We asked what age group the play area should cater for:

Age 0 – 4            87%

Age 5 – 12          98%

Age 13 – 17        38%

The designs received are predominantly for ages 0 – 12 years but have a few pieces of equipment suitable for teens.

We asked - Would you like more benches or a picnic table and 89% said YES.

All designs include 2 new benches and a picnic table.

We asked if you thought the play area should be fenced in and 76% said Yes so the main play area is fully enclosed with just the zip line outside this area on some designs.

Three play companies have now submitted designs and we'd like to hear which one you like the best.
