This is a website dedicated to providing detailed and up to date information about playgrounds and play opportunities for children and their carers across the Illawarra and Shoalhaven. Not only will it help you find local playgrounds and play services but it also provides playground photos, lists of facilities, map links and more for over 270 playgrounds across the Illawarra and Shoalhaven.
Play is vital to the health and well being of children (and adults too!). Play encourages children and adults to interact socially and be physically active. This site aims to provide parents, carers, and anyone involved with children, with information to help them find local playgrounds and play activities. We want to see our outdoor community playspaces used more and the quality of these playspaces improved for the whole community to enjoy.
You can provide feedback about any of the playgrounds listed by posting a comment or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Play Illawarra website was established in 2006 and is co-ordinated by Healthy Cities Illawarra – a not for profit, community organisation committed to the continued improvement of the health, environment and quality of life of the Illawarra community.
We hope you find this site useful and that it contributes to the goal of improving the health and well-being of children and adults across the region by encouraging active outdoor play.
