Help Design Ryde's New Outdoor Youth Space

Published on 06 March 2017

City of Ryde Council has identified two potential sites for a new outdoor youth and family recreation space and would like the community’s input regarding design and their location.  

The two potential sites are Eastwood Park (behind Eastwood Library) and Meadowbank Park (on Constitution Road near the Tennis Centre).

The recreation space will provide facility for skating, scootering, roller blading, and BMX which are physical activities that provide many health benefits for young people and often appeal to those who may not be interested in traditional team sports.

City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Bill Pickering, said, “Skate sports and BMX are very popular with people of all ages and a well-designed family recreation space will provide a safe and challenging place for young people to develop their skills.   

“This is a very exciting project for Council and we want the community’s feedback on this family orientated space that will include skate facilities, shade, play hubs, areas for young children to ride scooters and other general recreational spaces.”
