Taking the family to the park will soon be even more enjoyable with upgrades underway to create more modern, safer and accessible playspaces at three locations in Penrith.
Playspaces in Bunyarra Reserve in Emu Plains and Sales Park in Luddenham are being updated with new play equipment, additional bench seating and picnic facilities, and shade sails over the playspace.
Outlook Avenue in Emu Heights is set to receive a completely new playspace which includes the installation of new play equipment, a shade sail over the playspace, an accessible pathway, picnic table and shelter.
Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler OAM said these three projects form part of Council’s Sport and Recreation Strategy which has identified 82 projects valued at $125 million to be delivered between 2019-2024.
“Earlier this year we released The Sport and Recreation Strategy which set a clear direction for our open space, play, sport and recreation provision and we’re wasting no time starting the delivery of this program of capital projects that it outlined for our community, ‘Cr Fowler said.
“We know our community values playspaces and I’d like to thank everyone who contributed their input and feedback into the proposed changes and new designs during the consultation process.
“With the help of our community we’re delivering playspaces which appeal to families with kids of all ages and abilities, and promotes a healthy lifestyle of active and outdoor play.”
Upgrades to the playspaces in Bunyarra Reserve in Emu Plains, Sales Park in Luddenham and Outlook Avenue in Emu Heights will be complete by September 2020. For further information please visit: penrith.city/playspace-upgrades
