Have your say for the Digman Reserve play space!

Digman Reserve is an important open space area for residents living in Newport as a popular sporting reserve, children’s play space, for dog walking and other recreational activities.

The play space at Digman Reserve is due to be upgraded to the standard of other local play spaces in Hobsons Bay. We have created a concept design and would like to hear what the local community thinks of the proposed features including the types of play equipment, furniture and landscaping. Click here to view the draft concept design before providing your feedback in the survey below between 13 September and 11 October 2021.

Digman Reserve Master Plan consultation occurred in 2017 and was endorsed by Council in February 2018. The public exhibition period was widely promoted to the local community and all stakeholders who had previously engaged with the process. A total of 842 people visited the Participate page, with 621 people downloading a copy of the master plan. In total, 41 submissions were received during the public exhibition period. All feedback was received, and where possible, was included in the final Master Plan.

The Master Plan identified the need to upgrade and improve the existing play space located at the western end of the Reserve. Council is currently delivering upgrades outlined in the Master Plan to the Digman Reserve pavilion and associated sports fields. As part of these works, new car parking areas are being installed at both ends of the reserve.
