The local playground in the bushland area on Lofberg Road at Bicentennial Park was upgraded as part of Council’s adopted Capital Works Program and was opened to the public in April 2017. The former playground was removed and a new playground was constructed in a more visible position adjacent to the Community Hall, approximately 50 metres away.
A substantial benefit of moving the playground will be the ability for Council to better manage the recovery and regeneration of the Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest Endangered Ecological Community at the current playground location as required under the adopted Plans of Management for both Bicentennial Park and Bushland Reserves.
The new inclusive playground caters for local residents, park visitors and for school holiday programs and Community Hall hirers.
The playground contains new challenging equipment including an explorer dome climber, slide, swings, playhouse, and springer set in softfall to comply with Australian Standards. The equipment caters for inclusive play by toddlers to young teens with perimeter fencing, seats, a drinking fountain and a sandstone play sculpture. The existing trees together with new tree planting will provide sustainable and growing natural shade cover for the playspace users and their carers. Council encourages complying with SunSmart policies.
