Liberty Swing

We have installed accessible play equipment in Fremont Park including a liberty swing specially designed to accommodate a wheelchair; the swing was installed as a joint project between the City of Playford and the Variety Club of SA, and is located in the main playground at Fremont Park.

To use the swing you can obtain a key for free from either the Elizabeth Aquadome or the Playford Civic Centre during opening hours. For more information, contact Council on 8256 0333.

Disability Discrimination Act Compliant Bus Stops

In an effort to be a city which is accessible for all, City of Playford is committed to upgrading all bus stops in our region to be Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant.

We are changing some infrastructure to bus stops, this way wheelchairs can board and exit buses smoothly, while adding clear signage and tactile ground surface indicators to assist the vision-impaired.

We are pleased to report that, as at July 2018, we are roughly 80% of the way through upgrading our bus stop infrastructure to meet DDA compliance, and are well on track to hit our target of 100% before 2022.
