Plans have been unveiled for an exciting proposal to extend Livvi’s Place playground, located within Bernie Mullane Sports Complex, Kellyville. As part of the community consultation process, The Hills Shire Council is seeking feedback on the proposed design for the popular all-abilities play space.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said: “it’s an exciting time as we begin the process of planning the next stage of Livvi’s Place.”
“Originally constructed in 2009, and extended more recently in 2017, the playground has become an iconic location for children of all abilities and their families to gather, play and explore. “The proposed extension will add to this already vibrant and accessible setting, and allow this much-loved playground to be enjoyed by residents and visitors to our Shire for generations to come. “The first stage of Livvi’s Place was created in consultation with the community and I look forward to continuing this process on the anticipated extension for this much-loved playground,” Mayor Byrne added.
The proposed playground extension features a range of new park and playground elements to complement the existing facilities, including:
- An accessible amenities building;
- Additional play equipment including a play tower and flying fox;
- Selected areas of rubber soft fall surfacing;
- Accessible pathways;
- Additional picnic facilities and park seating; and
- Tree planting and soft landscaping works.
To make a written submission, please complete the online submission form by visiting Council’s website and searching for ‘Livvi’s Place Playground Extension’. In addition to the online consultation, Council plans to hold an on-site consultation at Livvi’s Place (subject to COVID-19 restrictions) in the coming weeks to provide the community with the opportunity to give feedback on the design. More details will be announced soon.
