Blacktown City Council, New South Wales, is upgrading six playgrounds across the City as part of a $790,000 improvement project. 

Mayor of Blacktown City, Stephen Bali, said, “These six playgrounds will provide valuable places for children of varying ages and abilities to play and learn.

“Playgrounds help bring the community together, improve our quality of life and allow for a range of skill development for our children.
“Blacktown City recognises their importance by allocating funding to build new and improved play spaces for our community.

“Construction work on the playgrounds is expected to begin in the coming months.”

Mayor Bali said the community was consulted on the playground upgrades, with resident comments from completed online surveys informing the designs.

“I thank everyone who had their say as part of the community consultation and worked with Council to ensure we designed the best play spaces possible,” he said.
