The people of Coombs may not have their shops yet but they can look forward to a new purpose-built play space.
The Suburban Land Agency has released the draft concept of its design for the play space on Edgeworth Parade, which includes basketball and multi-sport courts, swings, slides, kickabout area and toilets.
It says the look and feel of the play space is naturalistic, with the use of timber and a natural colour palette. It will be set into the slope of the land to maximise views of the surrounding landscape.
The infrastructure elements included in the draft concept plan address the findings of the YourSay survey.

There will also be a shaded picnic area and barbecue, a network of paths to all play areas and facilities, play areas for different age groups, parking, lawn terrace seating, and a sculptural mist play zone.
“The Suburban Land Agency’s design consultant has prepared a concept that brings the community’s views to life,” the SLA says.
The concept plans will be available to view at the Pop-up café at Stromlo Cottage in Noffs Crescent this Sunday, 24 February between 9 am and 12 pm.
