A multi-level structure creating a "circuit of play" is at the heart of a concept design as the Town Green playground upgrade planning progresses.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is seeking community feedback about the concept design.
The main playground element, as proposed in the plan, is designed to cater for a range of play experiences and ages.
The focal point, a built counterpart to the fig tree, features elevated play and outlook, undercroft spaces, large and small slides, a ramping and stepping circuit passage, net climb, fire-pole, sky and canopy views, shadow play and social play.
The playground concept design also includes swings, log balance trail, and lily pad-shaped decks as stages for imaginative play, balancing and jumping and picnic platforms with "bring your own umbrella" slots.
Community members have until Tuesday (May 11) to complete an online survey about the concept design.
The concept design was developed after community engagement in late 2020.
Port Macquarie mother-of-three Alicia Skreja said the concept design sounded amazing.
She said it was good to have playground elements for children of all ages.
Mrs Skreja said the Town Green attracted families but the current playground was of an awful standard compared to a lot of other already upgraded play spaces.
The $600,000 playground project is part of the Town Green west upgrade.
The Town Green West upgrade, including the playground, is a total investment of $2.13 million.
Some $633,500 is provided by the Town Centre Masterplan Committee, through contributions levied on commercial property owners within the Port Macquarie CBD, and $1.5 million is contributed by the federal government through a Community Development Grant.
The community space upgrade was officially opened in late 2020.
