Trinity Drive Reserve, Cambridge Gardens is currently under construction to upgrade the junior playground and create a new mixed community recreation space.
The junior playground upgrade will include new play equipment including a sensory zone, hill slide, play box, double swing with sling seat and toddler seat, sun canopy, trees, an accessible path and seating. Sparkling water makers and tanks will also be installed following community feedback.
A new mixed recreation space will also be built in the conservation area next to Cambridge Gardens Public School. It will feature skate and pump track facilities, parkour features, a climbing wall, basket swing, flying fox, accessible trampoline and spinner, and social areas.
Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said local residents played an important role in bringing these projects to fruition.
“Thank you to the passionate residents of Cambridge Gardens for helping us understand what they wanted to see in Trinity Drive Reserve and sharing their feedback throughout the consultation process,” said Cr Hitchen.
“These new recreational spaces offer residents of all ages more opportunities to play, be active and socialize.”
The upgrades are funded by the Council in partnership with the NSW Government through the Club Grants Category 3 Infrastructure Grant and Anyone Can Play grant schemes.
Penrith MP Stuart Ayres said the NSW Government is keen to improve the quality and quantity of recreation facilities for all.
“Well-developed outdoor recreation spaces are an essential part of our local community, helping to connect people of all ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds and to encourage healthy lifestyles,” said Mr. Ayres.
“These exciting upgrades on Trinity Drive will feature fun gear like the Flying Fox and climbing gear, as well as quiet, sheltered areas to sit and enjoy the outdoors.”
These projects were identified through the Council’s Sport and Recreation Strategy.
