Mayor Teresa Harding said council is committed to delivering tailored spaces where families can relax and play.

“The colourful new toddlers’ playground not only looks amazing but also builds on the existing children’s playground, providing a fun and safe place where our younger community members can exercise and explore,” Mayor Harding said.

“As we welcome more residents to our fastest-growing suburbs, council will continue to work closely with the State Government to deliver essential community infrastructure.”

Division 1 Councillor Jacob Madsen said the works would benefit the many young families in our community.

“I’d like to thank the State Government for stimulating the local economy by investing in community infrastructure that gives local families a safe place to come and play,” Cr Madsen said.

Division 1 Councillor Sheila Ireland said the colourful upgrades makes for an enticing place to play and learn for young residents.

“The new pathways, lighting, brand new toilet block and upgrade to the extension to the existing car park also improves the look and feel of the park,” Cr Ireland said.
