The new playground equipment is a Moduplay design and includes custom-built scaling walls, a spider net, bannister slide and a nest seat swing.

The play area has a combination of soft fall mulch and rubber soft fall pads for underlay.

“It’s a pleasure to see local children enjoying the new and improved playground,” said Blue Mountains mayor Mark Greenhill.

“The new play equipment meets the community vision for the Blaxland Oval precinct which includes partial wheelchair access; reuse of the existing spinner and swings; and complements the retained equipment for younger children.”

The new play equipment waschosen to suit the demographic of the local community and to be age-appropriate for the range of ages of children using the park.

“The upgrade of Blaxland Oval play equipment is one of the many initiatives funded by the special rate variation that have been brought forward to improve services sooner rather than later to meet community needs,”said the mayor.

Blaxland Oval is one of a number of playgrounds across the city upgraded by council in the last year.

In recent months Blue Mountains council has conducted comprehensive research and community consultation on open space, play and recreation, to inform its approach to delivery of parks and recreation services in the future.
