Sport and Recreation Projects

Sport Projects

Sport and recreation infrastructure and programs play a critical role in maximising opportunities
for members of the community to be physically active, both formally and informally. With limited
resources available to local government to support these outcomes, strategies must be realistic and focus on maximised participation outcomes. These commitments are supported by other State, National and International strategies. With combined efforts from State Government funding and Glenorchy City Council Funding we are proud to advocate for our Community with some the following projects:

Recreation Projects

Did you know that there are approximately 44 playspaces across the City of Glenorchy?

This means an average of one playspace per 1090 residents. This is far above the average of one playspace per 1500 residents – as suggested by the recreation and leisure industry of Australia.

Our City’s play infrastructure has been well loved, and the majority of our playspaces are now in need of repair/replacement. Council recognises that the community is calling out for improved playspaces in our City – and we are working on providing playgrounds which can support and enrich our growing City.

Council’s Planning for Play 2041 Playspace Strategy strives to increase play opportunities throughout the municipality, and identifies playground works needed in the next two decades. These works comprise:
