Most children and young people in the Northbourne corridor have little in the way of facilities and variety for healthy play. They can only rely on the resources of their parents and carers.
The public health and social opportunities for building community through attractive nature play space and play equipment along the Northbourne corridor are being neglected.
Nature play spaces and play equipment for children’s physical and social development is an important community building block and a key part of the social infrastructure of an area. Another indicator of how important play spaces are for children and community are the highly visible playgrounds in new development being a strong selling-point for families to buy in the new suburb.
An additional 111,000 new residents will live in the Northbourne corridor. The population is increasing as well with the densification of North Canberra to triple the existing population from 52,000 to 180,000.
