Carnegie Library and Community Centre Forecourt and play space

Carnegie Library and Community Centre Forecourt

The Carnegie Library and Community Centre Forecourt and play space opened in 2005. The plays pace is a unique design that offers children visual and auditory challenges. Children can listen to and make sounds while also learning sign language from the visual displays. The glow worm lights up at night and the bookworms provide auditory and sensory cues.

The Forecourt was redeveloped in 2015 and is a visually and structurally inviting space. The highlight of the Forecourt is the fourteen Jacaranda trees set amongst garden beds and circular seating. A raised seating area is the central hub and has the flexibility to be used as a dais for small community events or performances.

Located between Koornang Road and Carnegie Library and Community Centre the Forecourt and play space not only attract residents, shoppers and library visitors, but also people seeking a place to relax, unwind or socialise.

Free Wi-Fi is available in the Forecourt and Library foyer.
