Playground Strategy








Playground Strategy Background

In 2009, the City of Marion endorsed a Play Space Strategy to ensure the community’s playgrounds were well-designed, well-located, safe and fun for users. So far, 41 play spaces have been upgraded.

As part of the strategy, a number of playgrounds will be upgraded and some will be removed to ensure that:

• Current and future playgrounds are renewed at appropriate times to ensure safety of the community.

• Playgrounds are in an accessible location – this may include removal of playgrounds due to oversupply in a particular area. Additionally, it may include new playgrounds to address a deficiency in an area.

• Council resources are used appropriately.

Current consultations


As part of the Playground Strategy, 4 playgrounds are due to be upgraded and are out for consultation during October 2016.

Breakout Creek Reserve, Glengowrie

Clare Avenue Reserve, Sheidow Park

Gully Road Reserve, Seacliff Park


Playground Strategy Implementation

Council has been actively implementing the Play Space Strategy and is now starting to consolidate selected playgrounds. Some reserves have been identified as a reserve within Council’s Play Space Strategy that will have existing play equipment removed and minor landscaping works undertaken.

Council values its reserves, and we propose to replace the playground with minor landscaping to ensure the reserve remains a pleasant open space.
