Strathfield LGA Playground Upgrades

Wednesday, 19th April, 2017

Strathfield Council is reviewing construction of 18 new/upgraded playgrounds located in parks and reserves throughout the Strathfield Municipality. These playgrounds are designed for many different age groups and each playground provides a different range of activities for its users. Improvements and maintenance aim to ensure that playgrounds meet a diverse range of current and future community needs including specific age groups and people with disabilities.
