ku-ring-gai-playground-strategy

The Ku-ring-gai Play Space Strategy a is guiding document for the development and management of play spaces in the Ku-ring-gai LGA. Play is a fundamental need for children to ensure that they develop a variety of physical and social skills. Council is committed to ensuring that play spaces within the community are of high quality, provide excellent play value and meet the needs of a growing and diverse population.

Council currently has 104 play spaces classified as either local, district or regional throughout the Local Government Area (LGA). The Play Space Strategy will guide the investment in play provision for the future.

The draft Ku-ring-gai Play Space Strategy has been prepared by Jeavons Landscape Architects and Ku-ring-gai Council. It is a three volume document comprising:

  • Ku-ring-gai Play Space Strategy - provides a high level summary of Volumes 1 and 2 setting out the key objectives, principles and actions.  

  • Volume One – Analysis and Principles, gives an overview of Ku-ring-gai as an LGA, and its current resourcing for play spaces. The principles underpinning play are then articulated with particular emphasis on their application in relation to Ku-ring-gai’s conditions.

  • Volume Two – Play Spaces Assessments, provides a tabulated assessment of each play space within the LGA, outlining its current condition and recommendations for its improvement, along with a priority rating.

Community consultation 

The Strategy and supporting documents will be placed on public exhibition for community feedback early in 2020.
