Monash Council provides a diverse array of play opportunities for children throughout a network of 136 playspaces located in parks and reserves. This is soon to be 138 with two new playgrounds being constructed in Clayton (pocket playground at the Skyrail Activity Hub in Centre Road) and Waverley Park regional playspace (off Edgbaston Way in Mulgrave). The Monash Playground and Playspace Strategy (the ‘Strategy’) has been developed to ensure a planned, equitable and sustainable approach to the provision and management of playgrounds and playspaces in the City of Monash. The Monash Playground and Playspace Strategy 2020 establishes a framework for upgrading and developing playgrounds in the City of Monash. The Strategy is cognisant of and aligns with the Monash Open Space Strategy (October 2018) which identified a hierarchy of open space provision for parks and reserves that have primary functions as active (sports grounds) or passive (recreational) spaces.
