Meadowbank Park Outdoor Youth and Family Recreation Space

Consultation closed on 14 August 2017

For the latest project update please see Latest Updates below. 

As part of the City of Ryde's commitment to social inclusion and the health and wellbeing of the community, Council is installing a multi-use skate and family space to create a family focused area for all to enjoy.

This space will be one where kids and adults of all ages can either individually or together play, teach and learn how to be active all in the one space. The potential of this space presents a great opportunity for recreation and active community use. 

Meadowbank Park has been chosen as the preferred location and a concept design has been developed. Council would now like to hear your comments on the concept design of the new space.
