Play Space Strategy

Adult and child balancing on a log

The City has developed a draft strategy to guide the current and future provision of play spaces.

What have we done so far?

We have reviewed all our current play spaces and considered different ways of providing play experiences to the community in the future. We have asked the community what their favourite play spaces are, which parks they like to go to and their ideas for future improvement.

An extensive community engagement campaign was conducted in September and October 2018 including school engagements, an online interactive mapping tool and series of workshops. Thank you to all members of the community who told us about how they like to use their local parks. The feedback we have gathered is much appreciated and has been very helpful in informing the strategy and prioritising future works in play spaces.

A snapshot of findings from the school engagement program we conducted in September has been uploaded to the Document Library at the bottom right of this page, for those interested in seeing what primary school children in Bayswater told us about play spaces. In addition, a snapshot of findings from the remaining community engagement is also available in the Document Library.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting held on Tuesday 26 March 2019, the draft Play Space Strategy was approved for community feedback. The minutes of the meeting can be found here.

At this meeting Council specifically requested that the Play Space Strategy is to include fully accessible pathways in all of the City's Play Spaces and an action to develop a long-term program to progressively shade all the City’s playgrounds through the use of shade sails and/or the planting of large canopy trees close to play equipment. You will note that Accessible Pathways and Shade is provided in all park types listed.

How can I get involved?

The draft Play Space Strategy summary document is a snapshot of the project background and process, and an outline of the City’s proposed approach to Play Space Renovations in the future. You can view the Draft Play Space Strategy Summary Document in the Document Library below. For your reference, a list of all the City's parks by classification level can be found at the end of the summary.

The feedback period has now closed. Thank you for your input.

What's next?

Once the community has provided feedback a report will be provided to Council, along with the final draft Play Space Strategy for approval.
