Consultation has concluded

Early in 2020 survey results and feedback received from a community wide survey were instrumental in developing the design for the new Beasley park playground. The final concept was able to incorporate most of the favorite features plus more! Below is a recap of some suggestions received in the 149 survey responses.

Goals that were supported included:

  • Create a well-rounded, dynamic, and open-ended play experience;
  • Improve accessibility and inclusivity for children of all ages and abilities; and
  • Encourage children and their parents to come for activity, socializing, learning, and fun!

Life on the Farm theme was popular for the new playground and the District received hand drawn sketches from children showing what they had in mind.

Top 10 favorite Active Play features included:

  • Rope Bridge, Balance Course, Rock Climb, Tower, Slide, Rope Swing, Swing Set, Spin Pod or Seat, Monkey Bars and Rolling Topography

Top 5 Favorite Creative Play features:

  • Willow Fence or Shelter, Loose Parts, Stacking, Workshop, and Water Pump & Trough

Top 5 Favorite Imaginative Play features:

  • Sun & Shade Areas, Tunnels, Group Swing, Water Play, Farm Market Stand

Comments from the survey included:

  • “More swings and a cooler slide please”
  • “More shade areas would be wonderful so that the playground could be utilized more during the hot summers”
  • “I like to build forts and build sand castles and make things out of nature”
  • “You can make a water pump that looks like an old fashion one from the old days when we had cowboys”
  • “Kids love to pretend to cook and serve customers”
  • “Sand box would be amazing”
  • “I would love to see features for all ages”
  • “Natural materials as much as possible”
  • “I love, love, love these ideas. Our children need this kind of play that builds life skills and helps them become capable children in school”
