New Parks Open for Play!

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Parks For The School Holidays -

New play­grounds are be­ing rolled out across The Hills in time for the spring school hol­i­days.

On Thurs­day, Septem­ber 7 Coun­cil opened Tree Frog Play­ground at Oxlade Re­serve and Lans­downe Road Re­serve Play­ground - both parks are lo­cated in North Kel­lyville.

Res­i­dents, in­clud­ing young chil­dren, came up with the name ‘ Tree Frog Play­ground’ and listed the equip­ment they would like to see in­cor­po­rated in the lo­cal park dur­ing Coun­cil’s pop-up con­sul­ta­tion se­ries in March.

"This fab­u­lous play­ground was put to­gether with the help of the mums, dads, grand­par­ents, guardians and – most im­por­tantly – lo­cal chil­dren. To­gether we dreamed, thought up and breathed new life into this won­der­ful com­mu­nity as­set, which will be used day-in and day-out by lit­tle ones. The new play­ground in­cludes a climb­ing net, fly­ing fox, swings, a hand spin­ner, a ju­nior play unit, snakes and lad­ders and a hand­ball court, which will keep kids en­ter­tained for hours dur­ing the com­ing school hol­i­days. Plus, we have a pic­nic area and plenty of shade so fam­i­lies can en­joy a pic­nic or to kick­back and re­lax", said past Mayor Yvonne Keane. Lans­downe Road Re­serve Play­ground in­cludes a small play unit, a pic­nic shel­ter, bub­bler, a swing set and a pom­mel swing.
