Active play spaces for all ages

Victorian Councils have been invited to take part in a state project designed to create active play spaces for 8-12 year olds.

Space for Active Play is an initiative of the Heart Foundation (Victoria) which builds on work done through the Healthy by Design project. The initiative will involve the selection of three parks for redesign as natural spaces for older children’s active play.

The project will involve consulting with children from the selected municipalities and the creation of a design brief to inform the landscape architects, open space planners and play space designers who will be involved in the development and implementation of each park’s design.

Expressions of interest are now sought from interested municipalities wishing to participate in this project. Applications close June 16, 2008.
