  • Providing spaces for youth of all ages

    Buttenshaw Park has the potential to become a youth-focused space because of its larger size and location. The park is located next to the Springwood Aquatic and Fitness Centre and some sports courts. The sloping hill also allows for more challenging play opportunities that are suited to older kids and youth.

    Providing spaces for youth of all ages to feel welcome and engaged in our community is important.

    We will also be focusing on providing varied play types and experiences, as well as inclusive play, which means we are able to provide more play options for kids with additional needs but that can still be used by other kids.

    The whole upgrade, including design, construction and equipment, is expected to cost $1.5 million.

    We are also starting work on developing a Plan of Management and Masterplan for the park. These plans will include the City Deal upgrades, as well as a broader plan for the park.

    This is one of 10 projects that will be completed across the Blue Mountains over the next three years, providing a welcome boost to community infrastructure and public spaces.

    The projects will be funded under the Western Parkland City Liveability Program, which is part of the Western Sydney City Deal (WSCD). The WSCD is a 20 year-agreement between Australian and NSW governments, and the eight local Councils of the Western Parkland City.
