Ringwood's newest community play space
The development of Sherbrook Park means that local residents now have access to even more open community space to utilise.
Sherbrook Park has been created by transforming approximately 3000sqm of grassland into a playspace which caters for people of all ages and abilities.
The space is in an ideal location in the north east of the Ringwood Activities Area, on the corner of Sherbrook and Grant Crescent, and is easily accessible via the Mullum Mullum Creek Trail and the EastLink Trail.
During the development of the space, Council undertook community consultation with local residents to determine the types of elements that they would like to see included in the park. The most popular requests were for barbecues, playground equipment, shelter, seating and an open grassed area.
Council took all of this feedback on board and designed a playspace which includes a 400sqm dedicated, all-ages playspace with swings, a carousel, jumping and balancing play equipment.
Reflecting the former residential nature of the site, the play equipment has been modelled on a typical home environment with kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and patio play zones.
In addition there is also an 800sqm open, grassed multipurpose area which can be used for a variety of ball sports and activities, barbeques, sheltered dining areas, drinking fountains and seating.
For those who make sure of the surrounding bicycle network, they can ride to the park and secure their bikes in racks near the pedestrian and cyclists rest area.
