New playground for Meadowbank Park
Published on 15 April 2021
Construction has begun on an exciting new regional playground at Meadowbank Park, which will be accessible and inclusive for children of all abilities.
The playground will be located adjacent to the popular Meadowbank Skate Park and feature a range of state-of-the-art features, including:
- Active play zones with a range of fun play equipment including swings and a cable-way
- Sand play with interactive sand play elements such as a sand pit and sand digger
- Nature play zone with fixed sensory play panels, steppers and balancing logs
- Feature water play zone with splash pad and interactive water play elements
- A quiet zone for passive play including story telling.
The playground will also feature picnic shelters with fixed seating, as well as shade sails and trees.
City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jerome Laxale, said the final design and make-up of the playground was based on feedback from the community.
“We are constantly hearing from our community that they want enhanced recreational spaces and that is exactly what this Council is committed to deliver,” Clr Laxale said.
“Once completed, this new playground will appeal to all children and further enrich the facilities available to the community at Meadowbank Park.”
The new regional playground is a key component of the Meadowbank Park Masterplan, which was adopted by Council in November 2019.
A new amenities building will also be built on the eastern side of the Meadowbank Park. This building will be the primary hub to service sporting user groups visiting the new playground and adjacent sports fields and will feature a serviced canteen, change rooms, public toilets and storage rooms.
Both the playground and the amenities building will be built by the City of Ryde with assistance from the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund.
The new Meadowbank Park playground and amenities building are due to open to the public in early 2022.
