It’s been a big year of park rollouts in The Hill Shire.

And the latest park to be unveiled to the community is Twickenham Avenue Reserve.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne recently tested the new park and all its facilities with her two-year-old twin daughters, Maddison and Alexis.

Mayor Byrne said Twickenham Avenue Reserve provided the perfect place for families to enjoy a fun time together.

“It’s an amazing park with some really cool equipment,” Mayor Byrne said.

“The playground has a lot of diversity – there’s play equipment that suits toddlers and older kids, which is a bonus when you’re on a family day out.”

Twickenham Avenue park includes a scooter track, slides, climbing structure, pommel spinner and dinosaur eggs sculpture. There is also shelter, picnic setting and a drink station.

Mayor Byrne said the new park was a continuation of Council’s commitment to providing more family-friendly spaces across the region.

“We know many residents have already moved into this beautiful part of The Hills without full access to public assets and amenities. I know this. I’ve met with North Kellyville families and personally talked through their concerns,” Mayor Byrne said.

“Council understands how important it is to get pieces of the puzzle correct the first-time round.

“And to make sure this happens, we are taking a close look at how this part of the region can be a truly amazing place for families. We are making sure that we are doing everything in our power to create places that not only provide for our current and future residents, but are also special and enhance our quality of life.

“Twickenham Avenue Reserve is a great example of the work we are doing in our great Shire to create fun and safe places for residents and visitors alike, and encourage active lifestyles,” Mayor Byrne added.

In 2017, The Hills Shire Council opened Fairway Drive Reserve, Tree Frog Park at Oxlade Reserve, Twickenham Avenue Learn-to-Ride Bike Track, Lansdowne Road Reserve and the first-ever Livvi’s Place at Bernie Mullane Reserve.

The latest park under construction is Half Penny Avenue Reserve and is expected to open, with weather permitting, in May 2018.
