Warragamba Play Space set to open next weekend

Residents of all abilities will soon be able to enjoy the new Warragamba Inclusive Play Space.

Wollondilly Council will host the opening of the highly anticipated 'Livvi's Place' on Saturday, November 30 from 11am to 1pm at Civic Park, Warragamba.

The inclusive play space will be officially opened by Hume MP Angus Taylor and Wollondilly mayor Matthew Deeth.

"This is an exciting project that was designed according to the principles of inclusive play, along with feedback received from the community," Cr Deeth said.

"We want the opening to be a real celebration, recognising that this is something the community has been advocating for over a number of years.

"It will offer play opportunities for all abilities and ages for many years to come."

Stage one of the all abilities playground was supposed to open in February however it was delayed due to a delivery delay on number of the parks key components.

The council partnered with the Touched by Olivia Foundation to develop this facility for all children, with funding also provided by the federal government, the state government and the community.

The $1.4 million play space features a large climbing net, wheelchair accessible carousel, a flying fox, swings, water play, musical items and a changing Place amenities facility.

A free sausage sizzle will be provided by Wollondilly Rotary North at the opening event.

Free soft serve ice-creams will also be available on the day.

Entertainment will include face painting, a balloon artist, a clown and children's magician.

The formalities will include a performance by the Tharawal Lyrebird Dancers and will be attended by Wollondilly MP Nathaniel Smith, Commissioner for Open Spaces and Parklands Fiona Morrison and Director Touched by Olivia director Rebecca Ho.
