KINGSTON Council is planning the future for its 116 public playgrounds.
Drop-in sessions are being hosted for the next two weeks to discuss the future of local play spaces. The sessions will shape council’s playground strategy.
Kingston mayor Hadi Saab says the strategy needs a refresh. “This year, with a big help from our community, we’re creating a new strategy. We want to hear all about how, what, where, when, and why our community plays,” he said.
“These assets are so important to the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents, importantly providing free destinations for people to be active and connect socially and contributing significantly to our neighbourhood character and the overall liveability of our city. We manage 116 public playgrounds, plus all our active recreation spaces, and while that is a lot, we need to make sure they are designed and located in areas that meet the needs of our community.”
Upcoming drop-in sessions will be at Kingston Farmers’ Market at Kingston Heath Reserve in Cheltenham from 8am to 12pm on 3 June, and at Bonbeach Primary School’s Farmers Market from 8.30am to 12.30pm on 11 June.
