Improving playgrounds

The City of Boroondara is a family friendly city and home to over 100 playgrounds.

We are committed to enhancing the lives of children and their families by improving our playgrounds through implementation of the Playground Replacement Program.

This program focuses on the greater realisation that children learn life skills through play, and understands the importance of quality outdoor play spaces.

We seek to provide more opportunities for children to engage with the natural environment through play. We promote playground designs that support cognitive, creative and social types of play rather than those that focus simply on more traditional physical playground equipment.

Steps to replace playgrounds

  1. Site analysis and investigation - including external playground condition audit
  2. Community consultation
  3. Development of a concept plan
  4. Engagement of contractor
  5. Procurement and manufacture of play equipment (typically 6-12 weeks)
  6. Implementation on site
