ELS Hall Park Playground Upgrade

Consultation closed on 15 October 2017

City of Ryde’s vision for play is to support and nurture children and family friendly communities through play. Council’s Children’s Play Implementation Plan responds to this vision by ensuring that all families within the City of Ryde have access to safe, accessible and high quality playgrounds.

As part of this Plan, Council is building a new playground at ELS Hall Park. The existing play areas will be removed to allow for one playground that is bigger, better, and more fun!

City of Ryde has engaged an artist to design and install an artwork component that will contribute to a unique play experience and we would like the community to help generate ideas for the artwork.

Habitat Art Children's Workshops
We're hosting two workshops for children to meet with the artist, Jade Oakley, and be involved in adding ideas for the artwork. Using art, science, storytelling, nature walks and play, we will investigate the following questions:

  • What native animals live in the area?
  • What animals used to live here?
  • Can we identify any new species?
  • How can we help to enhance local habitat?

Date:    Saturday 14 October 2017
Where: ELS Hall Park

Featuring such animals as Blossom the Possum and Princess the Python, the Something Wild! show is a great way to introduce kids to our wonderful wildlife.
