Livvi’s Place Inclusive Playground

The Expression of Interest phase for submissions for Design and Construct of the Playground has been completed. Gunnedah Shire Council has accepted the submission from the team at Stewart Surveys Pty Ltd for the development of the detailed design plans and documentation. The development of the design plans has now commenced and will be undertaken over a 14-16 week timeframe given the Christmas shutdown period for suppliers as well as community. The detailed design plans once completed will enable Council to tender in February 2019, for the construction of this amazing play space.

The Inclusive Playground Working Group along with Bec Ho from Touched by Olivia Foundation, will continue to work with Council and Stewart Surveys during the development of the detailed designs.

Council will move to a ‘select tender’ process for the construction component on completion of the detailed design plans and is on track to have the project completed by December 2019.

Livvi’s Place is being built at Wolseley Park after Gunnedah Shire Council applied for funding from the Stronger Country Communities program and was awarded $850,000 by Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson.

As detailed design plans are nearing completion on the Livvi’s Place Inclusive Playground marked for Wolseley Park, we thought it was time to share a sneak peek into one of the items that will form part of the overall playground. The Proludic Inclusive Recycling Truck (as pictured) is designed not only as a fun space, but also to highlight the importance of environmental responsibility and recycling. The truck includes parts for sensory, motor and learning skills.
