Planning the Future of Waverley's Play Spaces

Waverley Council has developed a Play Space Strategy to guide our approach to planning, upgrading and maintaining play spaces over the next 15 years. The Play Space Strategy establishes an appropriate vision for the future of play spaces in our LGA and defines the actions needed to meet the needs of the community.

Thanks to everyone who provided their feedback on the Draft Play Space Strategy last year. We reviewed all submissions and amended the final strategy which has been approved by council. Click here to view the Play Space Strategy.

The next play spaces to undergo upgrades are:

  • Murry and Belgrave Street, Bronte
  • Onslow Street Reserve, Dover Heights
  • Waverley Park, Waverley

Recently completed play space upgrades include:

  • Clarke Reserve, Vaucluse
  • Marlborough Park, Bronte
  • Barracluff Park, North Bondi
  • Varna Park, Waverley

How was the Play Space Strategy developed?

The Play Space Strategy has been written based on feedback from parents, carers, children and young people. Consultation with the community via an online survey in 2013 received 266 responses. This assisted Council to better understand the priorities for our play spaces and make general recommendations for improvement. Results from this survey informed the draft strategy document which went on public exhibition in October 2014.
