The challenge of managing playground removals just as the second round of Covid-19 lockdowns are applied in Melbourne! Ivanhoe Rotary Club did complete the dismantling of the East Ivanhoe Playground just prior to the lockdown, but due to the restrictions on movements, we have been unable to transfer the playground pieces to the storage container at Footscray.

So, with the valued participation of the contractors (Citywide) and the staff of Banyule City Council, the pieces have been transferred to a temporary storage site nearby, and now are in isolation, awaiting the eventual lifting of the restrictions.

The photos show the dismantling process (deep concentration of members on the job at hand) and the dismantled playground in isolation storage.

Thanks to all who participated, including people from Citywide and the City of Banyule.

The playground removal and recycling program continues for the club.
The playground in Ivanhoe Park, on Lower Heidelberg a Road in East Ivanhoe is in the process of being removed and replaced by City of Banyule as part of their annual renewal program. Council staff, contractors (Citywide and Adventure +) and Rotary Club of Ivanhoe members met last week to plan removal. The playground was marked up with the parts coding today by David, Peter and Kevin, ready for dismantling later this week. Some difficulties at present in relation to the COVID restrictions, but we are all working on managing that challenge.
Another large playground at MacLeod is due for removal by Banyule City later in July, so more work is expected then.
It has been good to see reports of our earlier playgrounds being distributed to various localities in Sri Lanka.
