The following scope of works will be delivered at the Lot Stafford Playground site:

  • Comprehensive upgrade of the Lot Stafford Playground in line with the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play guidelines.

  • Upgrade of pathway network within the playground to accommodate access to all-inclusice play items.

The overarching purpose of this project is to upgrade the playground to be an all-inclusive play space.  The NSW Government (Department of Planning and Environment) have fully funded this project to the tune of $600,000.

The playground is being upgraded in accordance with the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play Guidelines, A Guideline to Create Inclusive Playspaces where play is for everyone in the community.  
The guidelines have been designed by the NSW Government to provide councils, schools, landscape architects and the general community with a toolkit to create more inclusive playspaces


Funding has been provided by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment’s Open Space and Parklands Program.

Total project funding (external) = $600,000

Feedback from the Tathra / Kalaru area in response to the “Understanding Our Place” community engagement process, which subsequently informed the CSP, included “improved recreation facilities and spaces”. This feedback links to CSP Outcome 1 Active and Healthy Communities; specifically the second goal of this outcome of “access to good quality recreation and sporting facilities”.
