Playgrounds are great places for kids to play outdoors. In Ballina Shire there are over 45 playgrounds that Council maintains. 

Ballina Shire Council recognises the importance of outdoor recreation in the development of healthy and happy children and has developed the Ballina Shire Council Playground Update and Management Plan 2022 (35.9mb pdf) to ensure the ongoing improvement of our playground facilities and to provide a variety of safer and more imaginative playgrounds.

Playground Shade Structures

To provide sun-safe and community-friendly playgrounds, Ballina Shire Council has resolved to install shade structures on new playgrounds where there is no adequate shade from trees. 
Existing playgrounds renewed under the playground upgrade plan will also be considered for retrofitted shade structures.
