Playspace upgrades

Playspace upgrades

Council will soon be upgrading 90 playspaces across the City with trees and other shade structures across the next three-years.

The program forms part of a shade assessment that was completed in 2019 as part of Council’s Shade Facilities at Playspaces Policy. The assessment noted 90 playspaces requiring additional shade to enhance the experience for adults and children using the space while beating the heat during our summer months.  

While there will be some disruption to the use of playgrounds during this time, we have endeavoured to minimise this by scheduling the works during normal business hours between Monday to Friday. You can still enjoy the use of the playgrounds on weekends and public holidays.  

The works will take place on a rolling schedule across the next three years, concluding in 2023.

The tree planting program will be delivered during times of optimal growing conditions.

The first 15 playspaces to receive shade structures are listed below. More upgrades to be announced soon.
