Morshead Park Playground Upgrade

Consultation closed on 12 August 2018

The 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, in 2018/2019 we will be upgrading the playground at Morshead Park and we would like to hear your thoughts for the new playground.
