Guiding the next 10 years of play in Woollahra

Play is an important part of growing up and we think play spaces in Woollahra should be fit for everyone.

That's why we've developed a new Draft Play Space Strategy to make sure our playgrounds are safe, accessible and age-appropriate for both today's children, their families and carers, as well as for future generations.

This draft strategy has been written using community wisdom and it:

  • Provides an overview of current play space distribution in Woollahra and identifies where there are gaps
  • Shares the results of community consultation - what's important in a playground to you, and what areas of concern are currently not being met
  • Outlines an action plan for the next 10-15 years. High priority actions include:
    • Delivering a landscape masterplan for Bellevue Park
    • Look to incorporate non-traditional play elements or sculptures within Epping Reserve and Lough Playing Fields
    • Investigate opportunities for additional equipment in Spring Street, Paddington

We have also created a video presentation summarising the new Draft Plans of Management, Recreation Strategy and Play Space Strategy, which you can view on the right hand side of the page.

Have your say

We surveyed the community and held two pop-up sessions to understand the community's perspectives before creating this draft strategy. We'd now like to know if you think we got it right. We invite you to comment on the draft via the short form below before Monday 3 April 2023.

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback to date for helping to make sure our playspaces continue to be community places where people of all ages come together, interact and enjoy the outdoors.

We will share the final Play Space Strategy on this page later this year.
