Plan For Playspaces in Hepburn – Play is For Everyone
Hepburn Shire has developed the Hepburn Shire Playspace Strategy 2020 – 2030, Play is for Everyone to improve the future provision of playspaces (inclusive of playgrounds, skate, scoot and BMX facilities, outdoor adult fitness spaces, water play and dog parks) for everyone throughout the Shire and would like the community to review it.
Council’s vision for the future provision of playspaces throughout the Shire, over the next 10 years is – ‘Hepburn Shire will have a network of engaging, inclusive and sustainable playspaces that are reflective of our people and our places.’
After extensive community consultation, the feedback received indicated nature was the most valued aspect for play, whether it was being located in local bushland or being around water.
Having a space to socialise, a location close to home and being able to attend local events and activities were also ranked as highly important for the community.
Other valued aspects identified for play include access to sporting facilities, spaces catering for a range of interests and areas for dog walking.
The research found existing Hepburn playspaces have potential for improvement to provide a range of recreational activities for all of the community.
This is an important Strategy to ensure there is a playspace to cater for everyone in Hepburn.
For further information please contact Council’s Sport and Active Recreation Projects Officer, Kathie Schnur via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 03 5321 6136.
Council maintains playgrounds located throughout the Shire.
Playgrounds are important community facilities, particularly for children, parents and carers. These facilities provide an environment for children to be active and enjoy the beauty of our Shire.
