Casula Parklands will soon be transformed into south-west Sydney’s most exciting adventure playground, with an eight-metre tall skywalk, tunnelslide, flyingfox and Ninjatrainingcircuit.
Construction of the $4-million project, near Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, is due to start late next month.
“I’m so excited about this development – this will be the best adventure playground ever built in Liverpool,” Mayor Wendy Waller said. “Not only is this great news for the residents of Casula but people will come from miles around to enjoy it.”
The 15-hectare site will also include an off-leash dog park, sculpture walk, picnic facilities, accessible play area, toilet facilities and off-road parking.
“Playgrounds and parklands play a vital role in the social and economic life of our growing city so it’s crucial we get them right,” Mrs Waller said.
“The council is committed to making the banks of the GeorgesRiver more accessible for residents, with more playgrounds and walkways along the foreshore.
“This area was the site of an old golf course and it will now be transformed into a regional parkland for everyone to enjoy.”
Casula Parklands Adventure Playspace is one of more than 250 parks and open spaces in the local government area that the council maintains, as well as 22 outdoor gyms.
Works are due to start late next month and are anticipated to be completed by next June, with sections progressively re-opened to the public as they’re ready.
