Quakers Hill and Riverstone residents are enjoying their chance to slide, climb and swing with their new and improved parks.

The $128,000 upgrade in Quakers Hill Park, Walker Street, includes new equipment as well as a new walking path to the park, and rubber and mulch soft fall.

The $128,000 upgrade in Ridgeview Park, Oleander Crescent, Riverstone, was completed with the help of $10,000 from Federal Member for Greenway, Michelle Rowland through the Stronger Communities Grant Program.

Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP said the playgrounds are vital for our community.

“The playgrounds contribute to the positive lifestyle of a community and are valuable spaces for children to learn and play,” Mayor Bali said.

The design for Quakers Hill Park was completed with consultation with Hambledon Public School students, members of the Quakers Hill Park Committee and the community.

“It is great to see the community being involved in projects such as this,” Mayor Bali said.

“There is so much to do at each park with a climbing ladder, a bridge balance piece and four person group rocker at Quakers Hill Park and a sphere climbing structure, rope spinner and a treehouse structure at Ridgeview Park.”

Ms Rowland said: “Having access to local facilities like these is what makes our community such a great place to live. I am proud to have contributed funds to this project”.

“I look forward to seeing our community enjoy this fantastic community asset”.
