$200K FOR INCLUSIVE PLAYSPACE IN HUNTERS HILL
Minister for Planning and Housing, Anthony Roberts, today announced the local community had secured $200,000 towards a new inclusive playspace in Hunters Hill.
Mr Roberts said the funding was part of the NSW Government’s $20 million Everyone Can Play program, supporting more inclusive playspaces for local communities.
“Everyone Can Play allows the public - no matter how young or old, no matter their ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds - fair and equal access to playspaces,” Mr Roberts said.
“This funding will create the kind of playspaces our cities and regional communities want and need, that is accessible to all ages and abilities and a vital community asset,” Mr Roberts said.
Mr Roberts said Hunter’s Hill Council was one of 30 councils selected in the first round of the program to share in $4 million to upgrade or create local playspaces.
“This is great news for Hunters Hill – The State Government, Council and Touched by Olivia have partnered to deliver the first inclusive playspace in the Hunters Hill LGA.”
“It will be an exciting new playground with a variety of equipment designed to be accessible for all children and young people of all abilities, including a flying fox, slide, merry-go-round, trampolines, a half basketball court, water-play and nature play elements,” Mr. Roberts said.
“It’s a fantastic boost for local families and kids, as it will support the kind of open spaces the community wants and needs – places that are accessible to all, places that help keep us connected,” Mr Roberts said.
