Community Engagement has begun for the All Inclusive Play Space in Warragamba

Posted on: 17.03.2017

The Touched by Olivia Foundation, in partnership with Wollondilly Shire Council, have begun to engage with the Warragamba and Silverdale community about the All Inclusive Playground earmarked for Warragamba.

Workshops were held for community organisations and stakeholders as well as students at Warragamba Primary School. Workshops formed part of the overall engagement strategy and participants were consulted on the overall design and choice of play equipment.

The Touched by Olivia Foundation and Council are now undertaking further consultation with the broader community through an online survey. Members of the community can submit their ideas and suggestions by visiting www.surveymonkey.com/r/livvisplacewarragamba.

“Council anticipates that the Inclusive Play Space in Warragamba will become a recreation hub where kids can play and families can meet and interact. It will attract not just the locals, but also families from neighbouring towns,” said Ally Dench, Executive Director of Wollondilly Shire Council

“Because of this we will be engaging with the community to get the mix of play equipment, usage of the space, parking and safety right. We want this to be an inclusive play space that goes above and beyond the expectations of those that will use it”

The inclusive play space is supported by both State and Federal Governments with Angus Taylor MP, Member for Hume; Senator Fiona Nash, Minister for Regional Development and Jai Rowell MP, Member for Wollondilly pledging their support. Wollondilly Shire Council, the Touched by Olivia Foundation and corporate partnerships will fund the remainder of the project.
