New Parks Open for Play!
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.
