    Yarranwood Park is set in natural bushland with lots of trees in the surrounding area. Wildlife is regularly seen in and around the park so it is important that we keep this environment as natural as we can by making sure that when we upgrade the park we use materials, colours and equipment that fits in with the natural setting and keeps the native trees.

    SHADE

    Yarranwood Park is lucky enough to have a lot of shade trees already. It is planned that these trees be kept and parts of the playground and seating are built under the shade of these trees as a form of natural shade.

    PLAY EQUIPMENT

    Play equipment attracts children and parents. Natural equipment has been included in the draft design to create a range of interesting activities.

    One possible pieces of equipment is a low rope course which might be of interest to older age children. On the draft design this has been drawn on the road side where it can be easily seen.

    OPEN GRASS AREAS

    There are two large open grass areas which are to be kept for more active play. The southern area is low lying and often boggy which makes it often unusable and difficult to mow. It is possible that this area could be reshaped and a grass swale created to the southern boundary to help stop bog from occurring so that it can be used more often.

    SEATING

    Reuse the seats that are already there and add picnic settings for families and people for longer periods of time.
