"The proposed design of the playspace caters for children of all ages and has a dinosaur theme with key features that invite users to explore and discover the different elements. The design will stimulate curiosity and excitement in learning something new by interacting with the environment and features of the playspace. The setting amidst the suburban housing in Nailsworth, with mature trees surrounding the area, and the new features will bring out the inner child in all of us. Coupled with a fitness station linking to our other parks nearby (RL Pash and Broadview Oval / Yarnta Tutu yarta), this design provides plenty of opportunities for active recreation as well as passive recreation where you can find a quiet area to sit and relax.” Nina Phillips, Landscape Architect

Community consultation was conducted from 14 August to 4 September 2020.

Council’s Open Space Strategy identifies the priority parks for upgrades and the Prospect Gardens / Narnu Wirra playspace has been scheduled for an upgrade in the 2020/21 financial year.

City of Prospect was successful in receiving a grant as part of the Minister for Planning’s 2019-2020 Planning and Development Fund for the upgrade of the Prospect Gardens / Narnu Wirra. The total cost of the project is $437,000 with 50% ($218,500) coming from grant funding.

A Draft Concept Plan for the upgrade of Prospect Gardens / Narnu Wirra has been developed by Council's Landscape Architect, drawing upon findings from the community consultation undertaken in late 2017.
