New playgrounds are being rolled out across The Hills in time for the spring school holidays.
Former The Hills mayor Yvonne Keane and former deputy mayor Robyn Preston were in North Kellyville on September 7 to open Tree Frog Playground at Oxlade Reserve and Lansdowne Road Reserve Playground.
Residents came up with the name and listed the equipment they would like to see during council’s pop-up consultation series in March. It includes a climbing net, flying fox, swings, a hand spinner, a junior play unit, snakes and ladders, handball court and picnic area.
Lansdowne Road Reserve Playground includes a small play unit, a picnic shelter, bubbler, a swing set and a pommel swing.
Ms Keane said the new parks are just one piece of the North Kellyville puzzle the council is working to put together.
“Council understands how important it is to get pieces of the puzzle correct the first time round,” Ms Keane said.
“And to make sure this happens, we are taking a close look at this part of the region so that it 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.”
Cr Preston said the council is working hard to deliver the public infrastructure residents need.
“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,” Cr Preston said.
