Playgrounds survey closing soon!

Residents still have a week left to help shape the future of play spaces across the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area (LGA) through Council’s Playgrounds Review survey.
The online survey was launched on 1 November and is open until Friday 26 November 2021.
It is the first step in a review of the current Playgrounds Strategy 2016-2036, which guides future play space development in the LGA.
Playgrounds Strategy Review:
Strategic Asset Planner Ben Creighton said the Council would like to hear from the community about its management and development of new and existing play spaces.
“Council manages 100 playgrounds, 84 in the Wagga Wagga urban area and 16 in the surrounding rural villages, which provide a variety of play opportunities for younger and older children,” Mr Creighton.
“Our parks and playgrounds are very popular, particularly with young families, so it’s important that we get the community’s input into how we manage and build our future playgrounds and play spaces.
“We want to know what residents do and don’t like about our current playgrounds and what they would like to see improved or added to existing and future playgrounds.
“This could be range from improving accessibility to ensure the play spaces are more inclusive for all abilities, to adding more shade protection or more seating or amenities for everyone who uses the playgrounds.”
The feedback received through the survey will inform a Draft Playgrounds Strategy, which will go out to public consultation next year.

The survey closes at 5pm on Friday 26 November 2021.
