    This discussion has concluded. The discussion and survey on this topic was robust with a range of ideas put forward. These were all considered by Council’s Parks and Recreation Team and Councillors when drafting the Playground Strategy 2016-2036. The draft strategy has just been through the formal public exhibition process and will be considered for adoption by Council at the February 2016 Council Meeting.

    You need to be signed in to add your comment.

    Wagga Wagga City Council is developing a strategy that will provide guidance on the future development and maintenance of playgrounds.

    Council currently maintains 92 playgrounds in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area, at a cost of $50,750 a year. The budget for the renewal of old playgrounds is currently $163,909 per year.

    Consultation with the community to date has shown that quality playgrounds are preferred over the quantity.

    Many families are going past small local playgrounds to larger sites because the smaller playgrounds are not meeting the expectations of the children and because there is more support infrastructure at the bigger sites to cater for caregivers.

    This is where The People's Panel comes in...

    • What is your experience with playgrounds in Wagga Wagga? 
    • Would you support the removal of some small playgrounds if it means better quality playgrounds can be built and maintained elsewhere? 
    • What could Council do to improve your experience with public playgrounds?

    This topic is open for discussion until 9am Monday 23 March. Please also take the time to complete the accompanying survey on this topic.
