What is the playground refurbishment program?
The playground refurbishment program will provide a strategic approach as to how Council plans to manage playgrounds in the municipality over the next five years and beyond.
The program has identified a priority order for the refurbishment works based on the age of equipment and general wear.
The City of Casey is one of the fastest-growing municipalities in Australia and will become one of the five most highly populated municipalities in Australia. In response to this development there is a need for the provision of safe and innovative playgrounds within the municipality, an important step in contributing to Casey’s liveability.
