Shading playgrounds

We know shade is an important consideration for families when they choose a playground to visit.

When upgrading and maintaining our play areas we consider how best to provide shade.

Sometimes this is a shade sail, other times a more permanent structure and in many cases it is about making the most of the natural shade in the area and planning playgrounds naturally shaded areas.

Between August 2019 and September 2020 shade sails have been installed in playgrounds in Forster, Tuncurry, Wingham, Coolongolook, Taree, Stroud, and Harrington thanks to a NSW Government Stronger Country Communities Fund grant of $550,000.
