Playspace Strategy

The Play Space Strategy sets the vision, policy context and framework for future development of play spaces in the City of Port Phillip and prioritises future play space works. The Strategy reflects an evolution and increasing sophistication in Council’s approach to play spaces with a focus on provision of ‘play spaces’ rather than playgrounds and of spaces that act as social gathering spaces that offer respite from surrounding urbanisation. The Strategy encompasses those spaces that contain traditional playground infrastructure as well as more informal nature based play spaces that consist of ‘green’ open space and natural play elements.
