The City of Stirling is fortunate to have 440 parks and 330 playgrounds for the public to enjoy, with something for every age group and ability.
Parks and playgrounds are essential community assets and as our city grows, they provide gathering spaces for events for a range of ages and abilities and provide a location to help build and strengthen community connections.
The City of Stirling’s Adopt-A-Park Supporters Program assists with the maintenance, clean up and beautification of all of the City’s parks, reserves and open spaces, creating a cleaner and safer environment for everyone to enjoy.
The program is a joint effort between active residents and the City to improve nominated areas by removing litter, minor litter removal, identifying hazards and reporting vandalism.
Adopt-A-Park supporters act as the ‘eyes and ears’ of our local parks and their prompt reporting helps the City attend to matters sooner.
Since the program was introduced in 2008, more than 400 residents have become involved in the maintenance of over 150 of the City’s parks and playgrounds.
Supporters perform a varierty of task including:
- Picking up litter
- Report or remove graffiti
- Report over-full bins
- Report maintenance issues such as broken sprinklers and vandalised equipment.
All matters above can be dealt with directly or reporting ot the City of Stirling’s Customer Contact Centre on (08) 9205 8555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Maintenance, refurbishment and replacement of playgrounds
The City has a review, refurbishment and replacement program to ensure they are well maintained. This includes:
- Fortnightly inspections for each playground to identify maintenance and operational issues
- Comprehensive inspections every six months to confirm overall condition.
The condition rating of a playground is then used to schedule the timing for major refurbishment or replacement works.
