The design for a new playground at Glenhaven Oval has been amended by Hills Shire Council after receiving submissions from the community.
Hills Shire Mayor, Dr Michelle Byrne thanked residents for their input throughout the design process saying there were now some new additions to the original design.
“Extra rubber soft fall has been added, along with two picnic settings and rainbow chimes, to cater for children of all ages and abilities.” Construction is due to commence towards the end of October, with weather and COVID-19 restrictions permitting. The playground includes:
• A crocodile themed multiplay area;
• Double bay swings with pod;
• A balance beam;
• An inclusive trampoline;
• A snake-themed springer;
• A carousel.
This project is being funded under the Federal Government’s Phase Two of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program, which aims to support local councils to deliver essential infrastructure while creating vital jobs and boosting the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Federal Member for Berowra, Julian Leeser MP said he is delighted to see this project move to the next step. “The playground is going to be a wonderful place for children to play in Glenhaven.
Mayor Byrne said the playground will be enjoyed by children, families, residents and visitors to the area for many years to come.
