Kissing Point Village Green's new fenced playground with inclusive play equipment

Kissing Point Village Green is the latest Ku-ring-gai playground to be made inclusive for all children, with the North Shore park play equipment upgraded and opening in April 2021. 


The new playground will open on 1 April and be an engaging and inclusive community place for everyone to enjoy.

Community consultation on the playground design was completed last year, with a concept developed from the feedback received.

The new playground has accessible pathways and play equipment for a range of ages and abilities, landscaping, drinking fountains, seating and areas where children can enjoy nature play.

It will be a place to meet, play and relax that enhances the local neighbourhood and growing residential community. The concept design for this local park includes:

  • A playground catering for a range of age groups and abilities.
  • Refurbishment of existing shelters and seating.
  • A drinking fountain.
  • An accessible path network to link the park’s activity areas.
  • Rubber softfall.
  • Nature play elements.
  • Enhancement of existing bike track.
  • Formalised accessible parking space.

The goal for the upgrade was to create an attractive, engaging and inclusive community place for everyone to enjoy

Work on the new playground was partially funded by a grant of $50,000 from the Everyone Can Play program, a state government initiative aimed at creating accessible and inclusive play spaces.

Mayor Jennifer Anderson said Kissing Point Village Green was a popular area with young families living nearby and the new playground would be a welcome upgrade for children of all ages and abilities.

“Council is progressively updating and improving numerous playgrounds in Ku-ring-gai, with features that will appeal to all.”

“This is in line with Ku-ring-gai’s Disability Action Plan first adopted by Council in 2014 and updated earlier this year.”

About the playground 

The play space is categorised as a district playground:

  • District playgrounds generally serve a whole residential precinct.
  • They are typically larger and more prominent than the local play space, with a distribution similar to local primary schools.
  • Its primary purpose is for play and social / family recreation and team groups.
  • Visits are often connected to another attraction ie. shops, school, kinder, sports etc and for meeting socially.
  • The role as a community meeting place is a key feature. Visits will be of longer duration that local parks.
