NSW launches Everyone Can Play

The NSW Department of Planning and the Environment released their Everyone Can Play Guidelines last week.

Local councils, landscape architects and anyone who builds playgrounds can use the guidelines to ensure their playgrounds are inclusive for all.

The purpose is to ensure everyone – regardless of age, ability or cultural background can access and use community spaces. The guidelines are underpinned by three principles:

-Can I get there?

– Can I play?

– Can I stay?
