Playground Improvement Program
Council has adopted a playground improvement program which sees all playgrounds in Mosman progressively improved.
Many issues need to be considered when Council undertakes a playground improvement project. These include the requirements and preferences of local residents, recreational needs of the broader Mosman community, site issues and constraints, existing facilities, location, level of use and available resources. Council undertakes to balance all these issues by consulting with the community, receiving advice from industry and through the judgement and consideration of Councils professional staff and elected Councillors.
Council manages and maintains its playgrounds through its Parks and Sports Fields Management Contract. The contract requires weekly inspections by field staff and formal half yearly inspections and safety reports from industry professionals. Formal reporting is undertaken considering relevant Australian Standards.
Council makes efforts to practically manage and maintain playgrounds with the resources available. Parents and supervisors should satisfy themselves that equipment is safe for use by children under their care before allowing children to play on the equipment.
