Turon Avenue Reserve, in Baulkham Hills, has emerged from a major playground upgrade and relocation which has seen it move closer to BMX track and located within the Reserve.
The fit-out includes the installation of a new play unit, swings, and a combination of rockers and springers, as well as a shade sail over the entire playground.
Fundraising by Crestwood Lions Club enabled the provision of picnic seating, a shelter, bubbler facilities and a bench.
President of the Crestwood Lions Club, John Ebbott said the club held sausage sizzles at a BunniReservengs Warehouse and book sales at Crestwood Shops and raised $1500.
“It’s great to see that Council has relocated the playground closer to the BMX track. This makes it safer for parents to supervise their children enjoying time at both the park and track,” Mr Ebbott said.
“It’s also fantastic to see families and residents once again using the playground and immersing themselves in the natural beauty of the Reserve.
“Hills Shire Mayor Dr Michelle Byrne said she was pleased the park was open to residents and families: “This new play space provides opportunities for physical activity, as well as recreation and social interaction.”
The upgrades come after the BMX track was expanded almost seven months earlier, with the inclusion of a mix of new and individual jumps and pumps.
