Children and their families in Albury have a new inclusive playground relax and play thanks to $110,000 in funding from the NSW Government and Albury City Council.
Member for Albury Justin Clancy joined the community today to celebrate the opening of the upgraded Endeavour Park in Glenroy, where everyone can now play regardless of age or ability.
“Everyone needs safe and well-designed places to play, to exercise and to connect with each other,” Mr Clancy said.
“These upgrades have transformed our old playground into an inclusive space for everyone to enjoy.”
In addition to an all-abilities basket swing and accessible carousel, we’ve added more shading, wheelchair friendly picnic tables, seating and pathways.
Other upgrades to Endeavour Park include an expanded play area, interactive play boards, improvements to the basketball court, and a new skate and scooter section.
“This playground is a great demonstration of our dedication to working in partnership with local government to support inclusive and vibrant spaces for the whole community,” Mr Clancy said.
Welcoming the upgrade, AlburyCity Mayor Kevin Mack said the upgrades improved accessibility throughout the park.
“I believe that through this project we’ve achieved something really special, and it’s part of our long-term vision to provide a range of first-class recreational facilities for all members of our community,” Cr Mack said.
Both the NSW Government and AlburyCity provided funding for the project –government funding was provided through its Everyone Can Play program, which is helping councils across the State create new and upgrade existing playgrounds through guidance and grants to ensure everyone can play.
