Our playgrounds are evolving into spaces that the wider community can enjoy -- what we call playspaces. This term helps us look beyond traditional dedicated play equipment to places where people meet and spend time. It considers aspects like seating, open space and shade.
The strategy will give Council a focused approach to planning play spaces across Woollahra in order to improve quality and provision. It will help us determine, for example, whether we need to upgrade existing play spaces or provide new play spaces.
The Playspace Strategy will guide Council's management and development of playgrounds in Woollahra for the next 10 years. We will consider things like how many people and which age groups use our playspaces, an where our playspaces are located (mapping). It will also take into consideration the community's expectations and needs.
Is Council going to increase car parking at my local playground?
The strategy will look at all playspace amenities including accessibility, public toilets and car parking. Although we will not be looking to increase the number of available car parking spaces through this strategy, we will be reviewing which spaces have capacity to grow because they already provide adequate car parking facilities.
