A timber forest castle and double swing will be drawing kids to a new playground in Quakers Hill.

Greendale Terrace Reserve is the latest park to benefit from Blacktown Council’s extensive playground improvement program.

Mayor Stephen Bali said suggestions from residents were incorporated into the new design.

“Parks and playgrounds are at the heart of many communities,” mayor Stephen Bali said.

“This new playground was designed in partnership with local residents to be a central and integrated part of the community.

“I thank the residents for working with council to create this new playground. You have helped make Greendale Terrace Reserve the wonderful space it is today.”

The new playground features a double swing, a timber forest castle with a slide, raised stepping posts, pole climbing frame and a spinner.

It was built at a cost of $80,000, including a $10,000 grant from the NSW government, as one of eight play spaces to get an upgrade in recent months.

“Playgrounds are vital to our community. They contribute to our lifestyle, and provide valuable spaces for children to play and learn,” Cr Bali said.

“Blacktown City has recognised this importance by allocating $670,000 to upgrade several playgrounds and parks across the city, including at Prospect Park, Doonside Heights Park, Azzopardi Street Park in Glendenning and George Adler Reserve in Quakers Hill.”
