Play Space Strategy ARCHIVE

So far, 33 play spaces have been upgraded since 2010. Council has invested more than $4.4 million to upgrade the play spaces as part of this plan, which aims to ensure a range of quality play spaces at the local, neighbourhood, precinct and regional level.

As part of the Play Space Strategy, a number of play spaces will be upgraded and some will be removed to ensure that:

As part of the Play Space Strategy, a number of play spaces will be upgraded and some will be removed to ensure that:

  • Council resources are used appropriately.
  • Current and future play spaces are renewed at appropriate times to ensure safety of the community.
  • Play spaces are in an accessible location – this may include removal of play spaces due to oversupply in a particular area. Additionally, it may include new play spaces to alleviate a deficiency in an area.

Planned upgrades

Play spaces identified for an upgrade in the 2013/2014 financial year include:

  • Linear Park (Waterfall Creek) Reserve, Hallett Cove
  • Warradale Park Reserve, Warradale
  • York Avenue Reserve, Clovelly Park
