More Local Playgrounds Upgraded
Local families are enjoying the City’s latest new playground equipment at Lowery Close, Emu Plains. This $75,000 Parks Asset Renewal project has delivered new equipment including a flying fox, as well as seating and landscaping.
They have also recently delivered new playgrounds at Brisbane Street, St Marys; Lincoln Park, Cambridge Park; Spica Reserve Playground, Erskine Park; Timesweep Drive, St Clair; John Batman Avenue, Werrington County; Redstone Crescent, St Clair; Adams Crescent, St Marys and Paperbark Crescent, Colyton.
Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler OAM said that while Council is planning and advocating for high quality sport and recreational facilities and open spaces to serve our City and region for the future, we know how important the smaller, local playgrounds are for local families.
“These are the places people can walk or ride to, relax in and use to connect with neighbours, friends and family” he said.
“We have a rolling schedule for replacing equipment to ensure safe and attractive local playgrounds that meet the changing needs of the community and take advantage of modern design and materials”.
In 2018-19, Council’s annual program of asset renewal will deliver new playground equipment in Cranebrook, Emu Plains, Glenmore Park, Luddenham, Mulgoa, South Penrith, St Clair, Wallacia and Werrington. They are also upgrading Cook Park in St Marys with the help of students from St Marys Public School as part of this year’s Mayoral Challenge.
