Play Provision Strategy

Project Overview

The City of Canning has 145 public playgrounds that are predominantly located in small local parks. At least one playground is accessible by foot to Canning residents.

To ensure that the City’s playgrounds are accessible, safe and fun for all members of the community, we want to know what you would like to see in your local playground. We have created a survey so that we can get your feedback and use it to help create a Play Provision Strategy for the City.

Play provision is what we, the adults, do to help children act on their desire to play. We don’t really provide play but we can and do provide the conditions for a child to be able to safely engage in play. Read more about play provision.

Aim of the project

The City wants to know what you think about our current playgrounds, the types of access required and how we can improve our playgrounds (what you would like to see in your local playground). By completing our feedback survey, the City will be able to prepare a Play Provision Strategy which outlines the future needs for the City.


How can you have your say?

The community survey has closed (it was open from the 1 December 2018 to the 1 February 2019).

However, to learn more about what the the City is trying to achieve, please view our fact sheet or for more information, please call 1300 422 664 or email customer@canning.wa.gov.au.
