We're injecting $10 million over the next three years to make sure all of Brisbane City Council's 1072 playgrounds are sun safe.
The accelerated program will see 50 shade sails installed in the next 12 months at playgrounds across Brisbane.
The shade sails will help keep playground equipment cool while making our parks safer for kids to play, learn and grow.
We know parks and playgrounds are loved and valued, which is why we've dedicated more than $580.2 million to clean and green initiatives in this year's Budget. This includes $106 million for new parks and enhancements, including scooter tracks and ninja courses.
