Parks & Playground Strategy
Parks and playgrounds are an essential aspect to any community’s landscape, providing physical activity as well as socialisation for people of all ages. Yass Valley Council has proudly achieved many of the actions and priorities from the 2014 Park & Playground Strategy and are now inviting the community to actively participate in the development of our next five year Strategy.
A draft Strategy has been developed and aims to identify the provision of playgrounds at various parks across the Yass Valley LGA and sets priorities for upgrading and replacement of current playgrounds. The draft Strategy will categorise where key facilities are located and provides a hierarchy to ensure parks and playgrounds are developed sustainably and that maintenance and renewal is achieved.
