Playgrounds and park furniture

Council inspects and maintains a network of more than 100 playgrounds and play equipment.

As part of Council's annual budget process, selected playgrounds are chosen for renewal based on priority needs, the condition of existing play equipment and consultation with Council's parks maintenance crews who routinely inspect playground equipment.

All playgrounds undergo regular safety checks by both Council staff and external auditors. General playground maintenance includes cleaning, repairs, replacement of parts and small items, and removal of graffiti. Council also progressively upgrades or modifies playgrounds to meet current safety standards and the changing needs of the community.
