Summerhayes Park Playspace – Inclusivity upgrade

Council have teamed up with the State Government to fund an ‘Inclusivity’ upgrade to the existing playspace at Summerhayes Park, through the ‘Everyone Can Play’ grant program.

What does this mean for you?

For families who are currently using the playground there will be some different types of play on offer, however as this funding is targeting people with additional needs, the design is focused on providing a significantly improved experience for these families.

The consultation with carers of children with additional needs has indicated that an inclusivity upgrade would ideally include:

  • Fencing the playspace
  • New accessible paths
  • More sensory and social play and
  • More seating.

The State Government has given Council $50,000 towards making Summerhayes Park Playspace more inclusive. This budget will enable improvements that will actively involve more children with additional needs being able to play in the space. Council will continue to look for other funding opportunities to upgrade Summerhayes Park as well as other parks across the whole of the Blue Mountains.
