How will the City address accessibility and inclusion in play space redevelopments?

    Play spaces will be redeveloped with the whole community in mind. Part of the project budget will be spent on installing pathways to/around the play space and connections to existing pathways, seating etc. We will also endeavor to include variety in play types to suit different ages and abilities, based on feedback from the community.

    How will the City address shade in play space redevelopments?

    As part of the Play Space Strategy, an annual Shade Program has been developed to ensure that wherever possible, play equipment will be shaded, either naturally or by a shade sail. The play space at Mills Avenue Park is currently shaded by established trees at certain times of the day, and the City will be planting additional trees in winter 2020 to complement the existing natural shade.
