Recreation and Open Space Strategy

Wagga Wagga City Council takes a lead role in the planning and provision of recreation and cultural facilities and activities for the Wagga Wagga LGA, and the Riverina Region, in general. In order to effectively support this leadership role, Council requires an understanding of what it currently provides and to whom, community aspirations and needs in relation to recreation and cultural facilities and services, and strategies to match these needs for future facility and service provision.

Two planning processes were undertaken in parallel during 2004 to ensure the necessary policy framework is in place for the delivery of recreation and cultural services to 2015, and beyond:

  1. Wagga Wagga Recreation & Open Space Strategy (2005 - 2015)
  2. Wagga Wagga Cultural Strategy (2005 - 2010)

This integrated approach to the future provision of recreation and cultural services will provide the future direction for:

  • Council's role in the provision of recreation and cultural facilities.
  • The development of Objectives to identify priorities for the provision of recreation and cultural facilities.
  • Strategies and Actions to address these Objectives.
  • A framework for which Council can monitor it's success. This report is the Wagga Wagga Recreation & Open Space Strategy (2005 - 2015).
