Launceston Play Space Guide

Pirrama Park SpinnerLaunceston Council in Tasmania has published its Play Space Design Guidelines. It covers eleven design characteristics that deliver value in play spaces and these form the eleven sections including one on social inclusion for people of all ages. It also recognises the intergenerational aspects of playgrounds as more grandparents than ever are caring for young children. At 24 pages it is to the point and uses several photographs illustrating the principles and practice in each section. Another great publication to add to the play space resources.
