Play spaces are among the city’s most treasured assets. 

The Warrnambool City Council is looking to create a new strategy to help guide investment in play spaces over the next 15 years.

Play spaces are areas of public open space that include some form of play equipment. While playgrounds are the most common feature, this strategy will also look at everything else in Warrnambool’s play spaces from trees, to seats, to barbecues.

Warrnambool City Council Coordinator Asset Management John Finnerty encouraged everyone who visited the city’s play spaces, regardless of how often, to complete a short survey.

“We are looking to find out which play spaces the community use most, why they like them and how they get there,” he said.

“The Warrnambool City Council maintains 58 play spaces, one skate park and one fitness area. This doesn’t even include the sporting grounds, AquaZone or all of the other great places to have fun and get active in the municipality.

“With new play spaces costing upwards of $100,000 they are significant pieces of community infrastructure, and we need the community’s help to ensure we are investing in the right areas.”

The survey allows respondents to provide feedback on up to three play spaces that they visit.

Submissions close on August 17.
