The City of Ryde has received a highly commended award at the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA) NSW Engineering Excellence Awards for the all-abilities playground at Kings Park in Denistone East.

The all-abilities playground was part of the Kings Park project, which transformed the former Denistone East Bowling Club into a state-of-the art open space.

The playground includes a mix of fun and engaging features including climbing equipment, slides, swings and nature-play elements.

It was completed in 2020.

City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jordan Lane, said the City of Ryde was committed to delivering quality open spaces for everyone in the community.

“Kings Park demonstrates our commitment to improving parks and outdoor spaces in the City of Ryde. My team and I are keen to deliver more park upgrades, with the next planned at Gannan Park in partnership with the NSW Government.”

The NSW Engineering Excellence Awards recognise achievements in multi-disciplinary project management, with judging based on each entrant’s ability to integrate disciplines and deliver superior project outcomes.
