“This exciting space is set to include in-ground trampolines, a flying fox, rock climbing, skate park facilities and seating.”
“Playgrounds and parks are a part of everyday Australian life and provide spaces where people can come together to have fun, stay active and just enjoy being outside.”
“The NSW Government is committed to investing in sport and recreation facilities for everyone to enjoy,” Stuart Ayres said.
