Terrigal Rotary Park now has a safer and more welcoming playspace with the installation of shade sails and new soft-fall surfaces.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the upgrade was made possible by combined funding from the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play program and Central Coast Council.
“This jointly funded $50,000 upgrade has brought Terrigal Rotary Park up to the gold standard of inclusive design in playspaces,” Mr Crouch said.
“The new rubber soft-fall surface under the swings will give parents and carers peace of mind as they let children explore, while the two new shade sails provide protection from the sun and light rain.
“Terrigal Rotary Park is already busy and well-utilised by our community but this funding will make it an even better space for children and families to enjoy.”
Central Coast Council Mayor Lisa Matthews said Council implements the principles of providing inclusive and accessible playspaces in line with the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play guidelines and Central Coast Council’s Disability Inclusion Action Plan to meet the needs of our diverse needs of our community.
“This project demonstrates our commitment to providing inclusive spaces and opportunities for all people to feel welcome and participate in community life,” Mayor Matthews said.
“With the NSW Government’s contribution of funding we have been able to deliver upgrades to improve accessibility and provide sun protection for playspace visitors.”
