Pop Up Play

To encourage outdoor play and help local children connect, we will be trialling Pop Up Play equipment in open spaces across Vincent.

Outdoor play is important for children to learn and connect and we want to provide the support and infrastructure for children to enjoy the outdoors and have some fun.

A lack of outdoor play equipment, particularly for older children, was identified as a gap in our recently completed Public Open Space Strategy. The independent audit of the City of Vincent’s public space found a distinct lack of play equipment for older children and teenagers. The majority of play infrastructure is focused towards toddlers and young children.

Outdoor play equipment has also been a frequent theme put forward by the Vincent community in recent years. It came up during the Imagine Vincent engagement campaign 2017 and through our consultation to develop the Public Open Space Strategy in 2018. We’ve also received four community budget submissions requesting investment in a pump track or bike trail over the past two years.


To bring some of these ideas to life and inspire children and young people to use our open spaces more imaginatively, we will be trialling Pop Up Play equipment across Vincent.

You may have noticed some Pop Up Play areas in your local area already - such as our free-play nature spaces at Woodville Reserve and Beatty Park, the bike trail and pump track at Britannia Reserve and the parkour climbing equipment at Loftus Recreation Centre.

These are our first instalments of Pop Up Play and we are hoping it will spark some ideas from the community.
