I have not posted any request for information sharing on this site before so my apologies if I don't follow the protocols for this website.
We are in the process of collecting condition data for all our parks, open spaces and sporting facilities. Can I please request for a comprehensive list of attributes that we should be collecting the condition data for. We have all our inspection check lists in place but a bit unsure about the attributes for condition data. Any document or email reply with a list will do.

Do you have an open space plan? I think you have. This typically is the guiding document for core service levels for open spaces of different functions and catchment hierarchies and the facilities they include. Also the asset life for seats and bins fences and BBQs etc are not unique to parks so you shouldnt have these in other asset plans - related to other locations. Also asset life info is readily available based on material etc.,
In parks and sports facilities there is a need to understand the difference between asset life and whether it is fit for purpose. Sporting standards and leisure behaviour change quickly and whilst you may think it has considerable life remaining - like your two stadiums their useful life may something quite different and you cant replace sports or play infrastructure with like for like. Also sorry to complicate things but natural playing fields also have a life - typically 15 yrs as do trees, and yet most don't get replaced. Synthetic surfaces- like hockey only have a life of about 7 years. Depending on the code of sport there are also specific requirements for associated infrastructure. Cricket, Afl and tennis have done audits of all their sites in Tas in the last year. My advice is for the very specific sport, play and rec infrastructure - get your rec people to give you the asset life and use the all the other pavement bins fences etc.from other plans. Happy to chat.
