There’s a new play space in Quakers Hill, thanks to Blacktown City Council.

Mayor of Blacktown City Stephen Bali said Greendale Terrace Reserve is the latest park to benefit from Council’s playground improvement program.

“Parks and playgrounds are at the heart of many communities, and it is the same with Greendale Terrace Reserve,” he said.

“This new playground was designed in partnership with local residents to be a central and integrated part of the community.

“The community asked for new swings, a slide and a climbing area – and we incorporated their suggestions into the design.

“I thank the residents for working with Council to create this new playground: you have helped make Greendale Terrace Reserve the wonderful space it is today.”

The new playground features a double swing, a timber forest castle with a slide, raised stepping posts, pole climbing frame and a spinner.

It was built at a cost of $80,000, including a $10,000 grant from the NSW Government.

“Greendale Terrace Reserve is one of eight play spaces to recently get a facelift,” Mayor Bali said.   

“Playgrounds are vital to our community. They contribute to our lifestyle, and provide valuable spaces for children to play and learn.

“Blacktown City has recognised this importance by allocating $670,000 to upgrade several playgrounds and parks across the city, including at Prospect Park, Doonside Heights Park, Azzopardi Street Park in Glendenning and George Adler Reserve in Quakers Hill.”
