Play Space Strategy

The City of Bayswater has recently updated the Play Space Strategy.  This strategy guides the future planning, design and implementation of play spaces across the City.  The strategy is based on a broad view approach to planning, taking into consideration the surrounding environment and existing play spaces in the area, in order to increase the variety of play opportunities in local areas.  The City will continue to seek community input into annual play space redevelopments.  More information on current play space redevelopments can be found on Engage Bayswater.

Play Space Redevelopment Program

The City bases its annual replacement of play equipment on asset management principles.  Play equipment replacement is informed by an independent audit commissioned by the City, at a minimum of once every three years.  This ensures play equipment is aligned with Australian Standards for safety.  It also provides a recommended schedule for replacement, based on the age and condition of the equipment. 

Each year the City selects those sites with play equipment due for replacement and completes an assessment to help determine priorities, based on defined criteria.  The City will then seek feedback from the local community to inform the design of the play space redevelopment and finalise budgets for each redevelopment, based on feedback and in accordance with the Park and Play Space Classification Hierarchy.


Parks and reserve maintenance

Accredited City of Bayswater staff inspect the playgrounds on a regular basis and maintain the City's parks and reserves. The maintenance of the City's parks and reserves are conducted on a routine maintenance program to ensure they are safe for the community.
