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 Waltham Reserve receives little shade from nearby established trees, therefore the City will look to incorporate a shade sail into the play space redevelopment.
