Construction starts on Eagle Farm Reserve play space

Local families will soon be able to enjoy a new district play space at Eagle Farm Reserve, Eagle Vale next to the duck pond.

The new play space includes a combination play unit, climbing net, accessible swing, combination swing set, accessible carousel and trampoline.

A mix of native tree plantings and sails will provide shade in the play space and there will be several picnic shelters and a grassed picnic area installed as well as accessible toilets and public art.

“This new play space will be a meeting place for families to enjoy time together, have a picnic and enjoy play equipment that is accessible for all,” Mayor George Brticevic said.

“I remember bringing my own kids down to the Eagle Vale duck pond and I’m delighted that we’re providing this fantastic play space to enhance the reserve for the many young families that live in this suburb,” Cr Brticevic said.

“Our ‘State of Play’ strategy was put in place to ensure all families in Campbelltown have access to safe and accessible play areas and I’m excited to see progress being made on a number of play spaces in the LGA,” he said.

Other local play spaces that are currently under construction include Waminda Reserve, Gadshill Reserve and Oswald Reserve.

The $725,000 project is funded by $200,000 from the State Government’s Everyone Can Play Program and $525,000 from Council.

Construction is expected to be complete by September.
