The City of Canada Bay provides and maintains over 40 high quality, innovative playgrounds across the City, ranging from smaller play spaces located in neighbourhood and district parks to larger iconic playgrounds including McIlwaine Reserve, Timbrell Park and Queen Elizabeth Park.

In 2007, Council adopted its Lets Play Playground Strategy, which provides direction for the future provision and management of playgrounds and environments within the City of Canada Bay. Let's Play assists Council to ensure that the provision of playgrounds responds to and remains relevant to the children and families in the area.

In 2010, the work of Council was recognised when it was awarded the Special Community Facilities Award for the Timbrell Park All Abilities Playground (Livvi’s Place), which is designed for children of all ages and abilities.

Let's Play has increased the potential of our City's playgrounds and broadened play opportunities, balancing the need to provide and maintain the physical asset with that of the children and families who use these places.

Let's Play provides four outcomes for our children and families around the following areas:

  1. Well planned playgrounds that are within reach of everyone in the community.
  2. Challenging, inviting and well maintained playgrounds for children and families.
  3. Sustainable playgrounds through good design, appropriate funding and partnerships.
  4. Meeting places that provide a variety of opportunities - promoting community connections and interactions.

To view the range of play opportunities in our City please view our Let's Play Update document.

Given the changes in our City and the delivery of actions and outcomes in Let's Play, it is timely to review. The next reiteration of the playground strategy will be undertaken over the coming six months and will build on the successes to date, and reflect the evolving needs of our community.
