Wentworth Falls play space opened

Wentworth Falls new Lake Play Space in the NSW Blue Mountains region has been officially opened.

“Council talked extensively with the community to ensure the delivery of a fun, interactive and modern play space,” said Blue Mountains City Council Mayor, Mark Greenhill.

“Over 400 people undertook the survey to share their thoughts with us and we were able to pull the most popular elements from each design option to create this wonderful new play space.

“Importantly, this new play space provides improved access for all abilities, thereby increasing opportunities for all local and visiting families to participate in play and fully experience this community space. Inclusive play elements complement the accessible pathway and boardwalk here.”

The new play space was funded by the NSW Government Everyone Can Play Grant and Blue Mountains City Council. Council secured a $200,000 grant to top up Council’s contribution of $400,000.

The NSW Government’s contribution is appreciated by Council and the community, Mayor Greenhill said.

Guests at the opening on Friday included Federal Member for Macquarie, Susan Templeman MP,; Ward Two Councillors, Deputy Mayor Chris Van Der Kley and Romola Hollywood, Amy Gage & Bec Quinsey of Moduplay who designed the new play space, and Blue Mountains Tourism president, Jason Cronshaw.
