Skye playground plans prepared An independent voice for the community

We are the only locally owned and operated community newspaper in Frankston City and on the Mornington Peninsula. We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

PLANS are being formed to rebuild the playground at Lady Emily Reserve in Skye. The draft plan features a tree-house play area with shelter and swings. Sculpted chickens, nests, and eggs will also be at the playground, as well as a path and open area. The plans were exhibited this month. The upgrade will cost $300,000 to

Frankston ratepayers. Frankston councillor Nathan Conroy said the equipment needed to be replaced soon. “The play equipment at Lady Emily Reserve has reached its end of life, so we’re investing in new equipment and improvements to meet community expectations and council’s play strategy recommendations,” he said

Other recent playground upgrades undertaken around Frankston include the $300,000 works at the John Monash Reserve at Skye, and $250,000 works on a new playground on Fleetwood Crescent in Frankston South. For more details on the Lady Emily Reserve plans visit engage.frankston.
