Everyone Can Play in NSW draft guideline

We’re committed to making playspaces in NSW more inclusive.

That’s why we’ve collaborated with local government, design experts and disability advocates to create Everyone Can Play in NSW, a practical toolkit for creating playspaces in which everyone belongs.

The Everyone Can Play in NSW Guideline has been developed to inspire more inclusive design of our State’s playspaces and set best practice recommendations for playspaces of all sizes, types and budgets.

We want designers to think about the little things that can make a big difference. It might be as simple as including a path for a wheelchair or pram from the carpark to the playspace, making sure there’s enough shade, or even a back on the seat so a grandparent can comfortably watch their grandchildren learn and explore the world through play.

We’ve worked hard to ensure that the Guideline will meet the needs of our playspace planners, designers and creators, but we want your feedback to ensure that the future of play in NSW is an inclusive one. Exhibition will run from 8 August 2018 to 21 September 2018.
