New Local Park at 29 Blossom Crescent Cambridge Consultation

Consultation has concluded

Children involved in Blossum Crescent Park consultation.

Project Overview

We are designing a new local park at 29 Blossom Crescent Cambridge.

Project Information

This park was identified as a priority in the Cambridge Master Plan in 2016.

Given the size and location of the park, it has been categorised as a ‘local community park’ in accordance with our Open Space Strategy Principles. A ‘local community park’ is intended to primarily service residents from the surrounding suburb who will likely arrive by foot. These parks provide informal recreation and parkland space with turfed areas, scattered trees, minor play equipment, seating and walking paths.

Given the categorisation, major infrastructure items such as barbeques or public toilets will not be considered for this site.

Community ideas and suggestions for the design, aesthetics and facilities to be provided in this park and playspace have been gathered.

Have Your Say

The engagement period for this project has now concluded.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit feedback on this consultation.

Feedback received has been used to guide the development of the final master plan for this park. The master plan is currently being finalised for council to endorse.

Project Outcome

We received an outstanding response from the Cambridge community regarding the design of the new park and playground at 29 Blossom Crescent.

Especially from students at Cambridge Primary School who used drawing and modelling to present their incredible ideas for playground equipment and layouts.

Council Officers have used these ideas as the inspiration for the final park plan which sets out the park and playground design.

A large, custom play structure will feature slides, climbing equipment, tunnels, play panels and elevated towers and platforms for all ages and will be the central feature of the playground.

Other play elements include a cantilevered basket swing, inground trampoline, swing set and various nature play elements.

To ensure the park meets all community expectations and desires, we have also committed additional funding to allow for the inclusion of other requested park features such as a bike and scooter loop track, outdoor exercise equipment and safety fencing along the road edge.

The final park plan is designed to be fully accessible with furniture selection and the layout of the key features of the park taking into consideration users of all ages and abilities.

We look forward to delivering a new open space facility to service the growing Cambridge community.

Detail design documentation is currently underway with construction estimated to commence in early 2020.
