All four district parks in the Blue Mountains will receive upgrades valued at more than $5.2 million, thanks to funding received through the Western Parkland City Liveability Program, as part of the Western Sydney City Deal.

Glenbrook Park will receive a new inclusive, accessible, interactive extension to the play area catering for seven to 12 year olds, valued at $1.07 million.

An adventure youth space including tandem flying fox and parkour play element, valued at $1.52 million, will be built at Buttenshaw Park, Springwood.

Further upgrades will take place at Wentworth Falls Lake Park valued at $1.75 million, including an outdoor educational pavilion and accessible viewing platform.

Meanwhile, a new toilet block connected with new accessible pedestrian pathways, valued at $928,000, will be built at Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park.

Mayor, Mark Greenhill, said the injection of funds into district parks throughout the City will improve public spaces for residents and visitors.

“These projects, which are concepts at this stage and are about to go through a detailed design process, will take our district parks to another level.

“This means we will have more accessible and inclusive public park spaces, which have better quality design and amenities, throughout the Blue Mountains.”
