Abstract

This report was prepared for the New South Wales Cancer Institute. It collates and summarises the measured solar ultraviolet radiation protection factor, the seasonal shade profile and onsite heat index collected from regional parks across New South Wales (NSW) in the period 2020 to 2021. A total of 207 site measurements are presented from 53 local government area (LGA) playground surveys. Playground measurements were collected across a range of urban, suburban and rural locations from the NSW northern tablelands, northern rivers, central west and mid north coastal districts.
