  • 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 playground at Abingdon Road in Roseville will have an upgrade in 2020

At Abingdon Road Reserve (which straddles Roseville & Lindfield), the design includes a main play space connecting to a nature play area which are designed to encourage exploration and imaginative play as well as coordination and motor skills.

The concept design for this local park includes:

  • A playground catering for a range of age groups and abilities
  • A drinking fountain
  • Rubber softfall
  • Nature play elements
  • Associated landscaping works

Find out more on the Ku-ring-gai Council website.

What about toilets?

Both of these play spaces are categorised as a ‘local playground’, which generally cater for people who live within walking distance and are not designed to attract people from further afield. As a result, they don’t include facilities such as toilets as they are intended for shorter stays.

Have your say!

To help shape these parks, pop into Ku-ring-gai Council in Gordon to view the plans and provide feedback.

The results of community consultation on the two designs will be reported to the Council by March, with work expected to start by May.

So have your say, before it’s too late!
