    The City provides over 100 playgrounds across the Bayswater with the majority catering for the local community living within 400m of the reserve. Local playgrounds are traditionally small play areas with natural shade (where possible), sand or mulch soft fall and play elements. These vary between natural elements i.e. logs and rocks or more traditional play i.e. swings and slides or a variety of both.

    The City has completed the community consultations stage for the nine playgrounds scheduled for replacement during the 2016/17 financial year.

    Thank you to all 69 participants who took part in the consultations, the City values your input. It is anticipated that construction for all playgrounds will be concluded by June 2017.

    For any further queries please contact David Bruce-Recreation Services Coordinator on 9272 0612.
