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 The Strand Reserve is currently well shaded by established trees for the majority of the day, therefore additional shade provision may not be required; however the City will investigate further during the concept planning stage.
