The future of play in the City of Canada Bay
Wed, 06/02/2019 - 16:21

The City of Canada Bay is calling on residents to help shape the future of recreation by contributing to its brand new Let’s All Play Strategy.

“Our area is known for its beautiful open spaces and recreation culture,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said. “This plan will provide a strategic direction to ensure we continue to provide diverse and inclusive open spaces in the future.”

Over the past 10 years the City of Canada Bay has undergone 32 playground renewals and constructed six new playgrounds to meet population growth. Let’s All Play will build on these successes, broadening play space planning to accommodate changing demographics and population density.

Currently open for community feedback, the new plan will focus on inclusive and diverse outdoor play spaces to attract people of all ages and abilities.

“It’s important for us to be inclusive and responsive to community needs. We want you to help us shape this strategy. We want to hear about your experiences of play, the kind of outdoor spaces you play in now and the places where you want to play in the future.”

“I encourage everyone to come down to St Luke’s Oval North on Sunday, 17 February at 9:30am for a Let’s All Play Community Day. Enjoy fun activities and food while we discuss the future of play spaces in our City.”

The City of Canada Bay will also be hosting a number of workshops with youth, seniors and people with a disability.

“We want this to be a robust and inclusive strategy so I encourage everyone to contribute their ideas and help shape the future of our City.”

Consultation is open until Friday, 28 February 2019. For more information or to contribute your ideas online visit letsallplay.com.au.
