Council provides 31 rural and urban playgrounds offering a diverse range of playing experiences including climbing, balance, swinging and imaginative elements for children aged from four to twelve years of age. The playgrounds vary in size and type of equipment and provide children with a safe and fun place to play as well as developing their skills.
In recognising the value of play to children a number of open space reserves located throughout Wangaratta as well as rural areas contain playground equipment. Some open Space areas with a regional focus also contain playgrounds with a wide variety of equipment.
Council's playgrounds are being progressively upgraded or installed to meet current safety requirements and the changing needs of the community.
