Earth movers have started transforming a vacant space in Gormon Avenue (off Memorial Avenue, in Kellyville) into a fun and interactive play facility for the growing community.
The new Gormon Avenue Reserve will feature a basketball court, playground and outdoor table tennis, as well as seating, shelter, picnic settings and a drink station.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said she was excited for work to begin on the new outdoor facility.
“I am so happy to see works are well and truly underway on this new recreational facility,” Mayor Byrne said.
“This new addition comes as fantastic news for Kellyville residents who will be able to come here to enjoy the new equipment, shoot some hoops, have a picnic, relax or meet up with friends.”
Mayor Byrne said the significant investment reflects the importance Council places on building healthy and connected communities.
“Open space is vital for the Kellyville region as it encourages healthy and active lifestyles, particularly for those who don’t have access to big open spaces,” Mayor Byrne said.
Council’s concept design for the new outdoor facility also includes a shared pathway, which connects to an extensive 82 kilometre pathway network throughout the Shire.
“The progressing park is just the start of many more new play spaces being rolled out across our region in 2018,” Mayor Byrne said.
“We all want our Shire to be a great place to live, work, grow and play, and the delivery of essential infrastructure will help get this growing region off to the best possible start,” Mayor Byrne added.
