Volume one presents the Draft Playground Strategy provides Council with an analysis and overview of each of Council’s 103 open space playgrounds with regard to key factors such as equitable geographic/demographic distribution, core levels of provision, playground classifications and functional design analysis. The Draft Playground Strategy also provides a detailed set of principles and guidelines for playground design, maintenance and public consultation including safety standards, accessibility, shade, landscape design, play value, fencing and amenities. It is envisaged that the Playground Strategy will be a working document from which a total playground management system would operate within the context of Council’s Asset Management Plan. Volume 2 contains individual Precinct Reports.
