Rotary Park playground open

A new playground was unveiled on Saturday as part of an $850,000 upgrade of Rotary Park at Riverwood, by the City of Canterbury Bankstown. 

Administrator, Richard Colley, said the park was chock-a-block full of fun equipment. 

“The park now includes water play features, such as water pumps and troughs, a sandpit with sand diggers, a sensory and agility area, equipped with musical pipes and flowers, and steppers to a mini communal seating area,” Mr Colley said. 

“To complement the playground, we’ve also added new footpaths, new shelters equipped with picnic furniture, BBQ amenities, tables and seating. 

“Further extensions have also been made to the existing carpark, with 55 additional spaces now available for visitors, and new trees and plants planted.” 

The park has come a long way over the decades. Part of it was used as a United States Armed Services Hospital during World War II. After the war, the hospital buildings were then used by the Government for emergency housing. 

“Fast forward 70 years, and we have developed a state-of-the-art park that local residents and visitors can enjoy for many years to come,” Mr Colley said. 

Rotary Park is one of 588 parks and reserves Council maintains. In 2016-17, Council delivered 47 park improvement projects at a total cost of almost $14 million. 

In 2017-18, Council will invest more than $72 million in capital works projects, including: 

  • $15.8 million on community buildings, parks and sporting fields. 

“We want to make sure our youth have places to play that encourage movement and help foster their imagination,” Mr Colley said.
