Playgrounds for Children under 5 years
A collaborative initiative of the 'Fleurieu Families Program' and the 'Eat Well Be Active Project' has enabled the development of a community brochure featuring Playgrounds in the Fleurieu region for children under 5 years of age.
This brochure was compiled following comprehensive observations of equipment and facilities at each Playground site featured, making it a valuable resource for local families and visitors to the region. Copies are available from the Visitor Information Centre, the Civic Centre or click on the link to view and download the brochure.
