Ryde Outdoor Youth and Family Recreation Space

Consultation closed on 26 March 2017

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.

Council is currently exploring two sites for the space at Meadowbank Park and Eastwood Park, and would like your help to select the preferred location. Council would also like you to help design the new space to ensure it best meets the needs of the community. 

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. 

The City of Ryde have engaged Convic, leaders in youth space and skate park design, to undertake consultation and would like to hear from you. Please see below how you and your family can have Have a Say on this project.
