Families in Prospect and Seven Hills have a brand new venue for outdoor fun following the construction of new parks.
Snowy Reserve, Tuross St, Seven Hills and Prospect Park, Aldgate Street, Prospect, both received more than $100,000 for the installation of new equipment.
Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali said the new parks will encourage families to head outside.
“Blacktown City recognises the importance of allocating funds to build new and improved play spaces for our community,” Mayor Bali said.
“Council dedicated $128,000 for Snowy Reserve and $113,000 for Prospect Park to ensure the community has a place where friends and families can come together and enjoy the outdoors.”
An extensive public consultation was conducted with the community ensuring both parks would be well utilised.
“There is a range of equipment for the children to enjoy,” Mayor Bali said.
“There is a multi-swing set, see-saw, a sitting race-car, a main play structure, featuring slides and bridges and climbing apparatus at Prospect Park.
“Snowy Reserve will include both a junior play unit and a senior play unit with slides, climbers, standing platforms and a trampoline.”
