Head outdoors and enjoy the spring weather at next weekend’s Salisbury Plays – a new community event based on discovery and fun.

“Salisbury Plays is a new concept for activating public spaces and encouraging people to discover some of the fantastic facilities in their community,” Mayor Gillian Aldridge said. “The City of Salisbury has hundreds of exciting playgrounds, parks and reserves, but they can sometimes go unnoticed – even by people living just around the corner. “Salisbury Plays is about encouraging everyone to come and explore a local playspace in a fun and inviting atmosphere.”

On Sunday 17 September, Bridgestone Reserve will be hosting a wide variety of activities including Life Be In It games, an agility challenge, cricket activities, karate, croquet, totem tennis and more.

‘Sticks and Wombat’ from Channel 9’s The Block program will be in attendance on the day. Local Scouts are providing a low cost sausage sizzle and the Crunch Bunch will be handing out free fruit. 

WHAT: Salisbury Plays

WHEN: Sunday 17 September from 12 noon to 3pm

WHERE: Bridgestone Reserve, Frost Road, Salisbury South

The day will include an opportunity to hear about Salisbury Water’s conservation works undertaken in the area. Salisbury Water is Council’s recycled non-drinking water provider, distributing to our parks, reserves, schools, industry and some new residential sub-divisions. 

Bridgestone Reserve was established on portion of the former Bridgestone tyre factory site and opened by Mayor Aldridge and Bridgestone Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Andrew Moffatt earlier this year. It offers a variety of play equipment, community recreation reserves, a fitness trail and water conservation projects.

Salisbury Plays is one of a range of exciting events within the City of Salisbury.
