Liveable Places and Spaces

Manningham families will get a chance to show off their favourite local playspaces in Manningham as Council launches its Top Five Manningham series for 2018.

Manningham Mayor Cr Andrew Conlon said the community was invited to name their favourite playspace in an online poll open until 5 February. 

“One of the key themes of Council’s four year strategic plan is fostering healthy communities,” he said.  

“With more than 300 parks and 150 local playspaces, Manningham has one of the largest networks of open and recreation spaces in metropolitan Melbourne.”

Through strong partnerships with the community, Council aims to create a healthy, safe and connected community with inviting places and well maintained community infrastructures. 

“We want to know which playspaces are most popular to our community and why,” Cr Conlon said. 

“It will assist Council in supporting healthy lifestyles, improve our community’s general wellbeing and encourage more young families to visit.”

The poll is available on Council’s website www.manningham.vic.gov.au/top-5-playspaces and is open to everyone until 5.00pm, Monday 5 February, with the results revealed shortly after.
