Seven Hills residents are spoilt for choice with the addition of two upgraded parks in the suburb.

Chopin Park, Chopin Street, and Katrina Park, Katrina Street, each received a $128,000 upgrade.

The upgrade for Katrina Park was completed with the help of the Member for Greenway, Michelle Rowland MP, who facilitated a $10,000 contribution from the Stronger Communities Grant Program.

Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP said Council acknowledged the importance of parks for the wellbeing of communities.

“There is a range of different equipment to cater for children of all ages,” Mayor Bali said.

“Chopin Park has a circular trampoline, rubber tyre steppers, a net climbing structure and a swing set.

“Katrina Park has a balance beam and steppers, a tee pee, arched net climber, ladders and observation platforms.”

Ms Rowland said: “Parks like these encourage local residents to live active lifestyles. I am proud to have pushed for Federal funding to help improve the health of our community”.
