Mabel Talbot Reserve playspace replacement

Children on a net swing in playground

As part of the 2016/2017 Capital Improvements Program the Mabel Talbot Reserve playspace is set to be replaced.

A key area of responsibility for the City of Subiaco Operations and Environment team is the management and maintenance of the 22 playgrounds across the city.

Annual audits and routine inspections help the team to identify when a playground is nearing the end of its safe useful life. Once playgrounds are identified, replacement or upgrade plans are developed and the play equipment will be replaced or upgraded as part of the city’s Capital Improvements Program. The replacement or upgrade of play equipment is guided by community input, budget considerations and the city’s Playspace Strategy (2013).

If you would like any further information please contact the city’s Operations and Environment branch on 9387 0942 or city@subiaco.wa.gov.au.

UPDATE: Stage 3 consultation has now closed and the playspace design that will be installed at Mabel Talbot Reserve is Option 1: PlayRight playspace designs.
