Play Space Strategy

Public play spaces provide highly valued opportunities for people of all ages to engage in physical activity, enjoy the outdoors, have fun and interact with others. Play spaces also provide valuable opportunities for children to explore, challenge and express themselves and develop a range of physical, cognitive and social skills which are vital to a child’s development. Cardinia Shire Council recognise the role of public play spaces in contributing to the health and wellbeing of the community and currently provides 92 public play spaces throughout the municipality, in addition to numerous other recreation facilities that provide play opportunities for all ages. More play spaces will continue to be developed in Cardinia Shire in response to the growing population and the high and increasing number of children and families within the municipality. The Play Space Strategy has been prepared to guide the planning, development and management of the growing play space network and to ensure the provision of high quality play opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.
