26 March 2020
In accordance with recommendations from the industry peak body, Play Australia, North Sydney Council has closed public playgrounds during the COVID19 lockdown period, commencing 26 March 2020.
Play Australia advise:
The Prime Minister announced that indoor and outdoor play centres are to join the list of services throughout the country to be closed.
Clearly this aims to further restrict the capacity of people to congregate in groups and to reduce the spread of the Covid19 virus in keeping with the social-distancing policy of all state and federal governments.
Play Australia therefore recommend that all outdoor playgrounds should be closed.
Our communities need to be advised not to take children to outdoor playgrounds at this time but to utilise outdoor green spaces such as parks and reserves where families can practise social-distancing.
