Wagga City Council is asking residents to have their say in a new playground for local families and travellers alike.
A new outdoor recreation facility has been planned for the rest stop on the Olympic Highway at Uranquinty.
The council's works and playground officer, John Conlan, said they were replacing the old equipment.
"We got designs from a few different companies, and we just shortlisted them to three to go out to the public," he said.

"They all have swing sets and just various climbing and rocking equipment to add something new and fun for the area."
Mr Conlan said the designs, which encourage play between younger and older children, would incorporate exciting features.
He encouraged residents to have their say.
"Rather than council staff just picking what we think the community might like, we wanted to give residents the opportunity to have some input in what we provide them," Mr Conlan said.
"Once we have placed the order, it takes up to 12 weeks before the equipment is shipped down ... it will probably be after March next year that the equipment is installed."
Mr Conlan said the playground would benefit local families and also travellers through the region, adding businesses might see some positive impacts too.
He said travellers could be more inclined to stop at Uranquinty knowing they can get a coffee, a bite to eat, and the children can stretch their legs out.
Voting closes at 5pm on December 6. For more information, go to wagga.nsw.gov.au/parks-and-recreation/recreation/playgrounds.
