RESIDENTS can have their say on what upgrades they want to see at six play spaces in the City of Bayswater this month.

Claughton Reserve, The Strand Reserve and Mills Avenue Reserve in Bayswater, Pat O’Hara Reserve and Waltham Reserve in Morley and the Noranda sporting complex are due for redevelopment.

Works at one of the reserves will start in early 2020.

Mayor Dan Bull said residents could complete a survey, join in-park consultation sessions and add to an online ideas tab.

“Play spaces are incredibly important in the heart of the inner east – providing a free place for everyone our community to get outside, stay active and catch up with friends and family,” he said.

“They’re even shown to help fight obesity, improve mental health and build social skills when used regularly.

“This is your chance to make a real impact on the kinds of playground equipment, pathways, shade and furniture you’d like to see in your local play space.”

Consultation closes on December 20.
