Bendigo's playspaces are gradually being reopened with outdoor exercise and recreation permitted following an easing of coronavirus restrictions on Sunday night.
As part of the Second Step of the regional Victoria COVID-19 roadmap, the City of Greater Bendigo's more than 130 playspaces are open for use.
Council's parks and open space manager Paul Gangell said staff worked on Monday to remove signage from parks.
"During the past few weeks we have been carrying out cleans on all of our playspaces, including high pressure cleans and wiping down all high contact touch points," Mr Gangell said.
Playspaces at Lake Weeroona, Eaglehawk, Strathdale and the Botanic Gardens are the most popular in the municipality, Mr Gangell said.
"From this week, we will commence sterile cleans on our high use playspaces," he said.
These cleans are in addition to what has been undertaken in past weeks.
Parents are urged to bring their own hand sanitiser to playspaces and wiping down high touch point areas is encouraged.
"Those high touch point areas are anywhere children are putting their hands, which can be almost anywhere and everywhere," Mr Gangell said.
"Grab handles and swings are some of those points."
Mr Gangell said now was an ideal time for families to make use of the spaces.
"It is the perfect time of year with spring and school holidays not far away," he said.
"It's fantastic to see the playspaces used again."
