Construction has begun on an exciting new regional playground at Meadowbank Park, which will be
accessible and inclusive for children of all abilities.
The playground will be located adjacent to the popular Meadowbank Skate Park and feature a range
of st ate -of-the -art features, including.
• Active play zones with a range of fun play equipment including swings and a cable -way
• Sand play with interactive sand play element s such as a sand pit and sand digger

• Feature water play zone with splash pad and interactive water play elements
• A quiet zone for passive play including story telling.
The playground will also feature picnic shelters with fixed seating, as well as shade sails and trees.
City of Ryde Ma yor, Clr Jerome Laxale, said the final design and make -up of the playground was
based on feedback from the community.
“We are constantly hear ing from our community that they want enhanced recreational spaces and that
is exactly what this Council is committed to deliver,” Clr Laxale said.
“Once completed, this new playground will appeal to all children and further enrich the facilities
availabl e to the community at Meadowbank Park.”
The new regional playground is a key component of the Meadowbank Park Masterplan, which was
adopted by Council in November 2019.
A new amenities building will also be built on the eastern side of the Meadowbank Park. This building
will be the primary hub to service sporting user groups visiting the new playground and adjacent
sports fields and will feature a serviced canteen, change rooms, public toilets and storage rooms.
Both the playground and the amenities buildin g will be built by the City of Ryde with assistance from
the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund.
