More inclusive playspaces will be rolled out across the state, with $4 million to be shared between 29 councils in the fourth and final round of the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play program.
Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the funding will support the delivery of 33 new or upgraded playspaces across NSW.
“All communities should have access to great public spaces, and the Everyone Can Play program is providing people of all ages and abilities with places to come together and have fun,” Mr Stokes said.
Some of the 33 projects funded in the final round of the Everyone Can Play program include:
The Everyone Can Play program was established in 2018 as part of the NSW Government’s $290 million Open Spaces and Greener Sydney package. It supports the Government’s target of increasing public access to quality, walkable, green and open public space.
An additional $4 million is also up for grabs for councils across Greater Sydney as part of the NSW Government’s Metropolitan Greenspace Program.
Mr Stokes said the NSW Government will match councils dollar-for-dollar for new and improved parks, cycleways and greenspaces.
Applications for the Metropolitan Greenspace Program are open until 4 March 2022.
