Clyde Jones Reserve Playspace Design

About this project

The playspace at Clyde Jones Reserve has been earmarked for a design improvement this year. This is part of the City of Darebin’s commitment to improve parks and reserves for the community to enjoy, and as identified in the Playspace Strategy (2010-20).

Some recommendations for the playspace improvements include:

  • Improvement to or replacement of junior and senior play equipment.
  • New accessible swings and cubby for all ages and all abilities.
  • Addition of natural play zone and materials.
  • Replacement of vines for pergola and replenishing of garden beds.
  • Improvements to path network.


Location of Playspace

Clyde Jones Reserve is located in Thornbury, at the corner of Victoria Road and Clarendon Street.


What has happened so far?

Council provided an online survey during March 2019 and a drop-in session at the Clyde Jones Playspace on Saturday 16 March. Thank you to all of the community members, families and children who shared their ideas about the playspace upgrade.

The community feedback is now being compiled and considered in preparation of a draft concept design. Council will release the concept design for further community input in the coming months.
