Draft Play Wollongong Strategy

Consultation has concluded

Play Wollongong is a framework that will guide how Council will plan, deliver and manage play spaces for children aged 0-12 years, across the Wollongong local government area over the next 10 years. It is based on the vision:

‘Wollongong offers a range of high quality play spaces that are distributed equitably across the city, are well maintained and meet the needs of the community. Wollongong’s play spaces are safe, enjoyable, challenging and serve as important community spaces that foster social connectedness and well-being.’

The draft strategy has been developed with lots of help and feedback from our community over the past two years. This includes input provided through the development of the Community Strategic Plan, Wollongong 2022, the 2012 Community Survey, Council’s Securing Our Future project and recent engagement activities undertaken with primary school children and professionals in children’s development. We’d like to thank everyone who has provided input so far, especially the local children.

We currently have 155 play spaces stretching from Helensburgh to Windang. These range from local level play spaces to regional key recreation destination play spaces.

We’re now encouraging everyone to help us make Wollongong a better place to play by giving feedback on this draft strategy.
