Playground upgrades commencing soon!

Playground designs have been finalised and the construction of the park upgrade is due to commence in June 2020.

While the park is under construction the park will be closed to the public.

The park is expected to be completed by August 2020.

Check out what the new park will look like, you can see the playground designs in the document library to the right of the menu page.

Background

Penrith City Council has 148 play grounds across the Local Government Area. Council has a commitment to improve our play grounds and is carrying out an asset renewal program. Sales Park Playground requires additional equipment to meet the community need. Council is seeking community input to help us deliver the best result for the community.

What is possible in the upgrades?

  • new play equipment
  • playground surface upgrade
  • new seating
  • new landscaping
  • new planting and shade options
  • pathways

What is not possible in the upgrades?

  • new location within reserve
  • new fencing and toilets
  • water playground or splash pad

How are works being funded?

The parks have been selected based on their condition so are due for renewal (they are at the end of their useful life) Playgrounds are funded through the parks Asset Renewal Program.

Access to parks during upgrades?

During construction the playground equipment and surrounding area will be closed with fencing installed around the spaces unavailable for play. During this time, why not try some of our other parks? You can view a map and list of our parks at https://www.penrithcity.nsw.gov.au/facilities-recreation/outdoor-recreation/playgrounds

What if my local playground isn’t on this list but needs improvements?

Over the next 5 years we will upgrade more than 25 local playgrounds across the Penrith City Council area.

There is a good chance that if your park is looking tired and requiring improvement, it could be next in line for Parks Asset Renewal funding in the coming year(s).

What else is happening in the area?

  • Regatta Park Upgrade will see a $24 million upgrade delivered by 2022. This project is co-funded by the NSW and Australian Governments and will deliver enhanced event and festival areas, picnic spaces, river terraces, a regional playground for children and potential future dining precinct with expansive river views.

  • Brian King Park, Oxley Park; as part of this year’s Mayoral Challenge Year 5 students from Oxley Park Public School worked with Council staff to plan how they could improve the space for their local community.
