Neighbourhood Park

A neighbourhood park is typically a small park, usually between 0.25 to 2 hectares in area. They typically have playground facilities and are located within 400m distance of residential areas. Parents with young children are the main users. They may be linked with or adjacent to cycleways, Pedestrian Parkland and Laneways. A Local Neighbourhood Park (0.25 to 1 ha) may become integral to the design of a residential neighbourhood where its smaller size provides a site for safe play by children under surveillance by adults. A Central Neighbourhood Park (0.5 to 2 ha) may be located adjacent to or surrounding a Neighbourhood Sportsground or Informal Use Oval.
