The restrictions we experienced during COVID-19 saw us increasing our participation in non-organised recreation, highlighting the vital role that local parks and reserves play in improving our health.
Council partnered with Sport and Recreation Victoria to develop an Active Recreation Opportunities Strategy for the City of Monash to guide the future enhancement of parks and reserves to encourage healthy physical activity.
The strategy focuses on non-organised recreation (casual and informal activity) in parks and reserves by developing environments that encourage residents to get active in their local communities.
We conducted over 40 site
assessments of parks and reserves to identify opportunities
to introduce active recreation infrastructure and enhance the existing
environment. Facilities such as outdoor fitness equipment, walking circuits,
bocce courts, basketball courts, skate parks, climbing walls and other
infrastructure that encourage residents to engage in healthy physical activity
