New playgrounds have kids climbing to the stars!
Three brand new playgrounds have opened in time for Spring, providing our youngest residents enjoyment and adventure on a range of attractions from climbing walls to celestial stars.
Feedback to Ryde City Council from the local community helped with the design of each playground which contain a choice of play equipment including colourful combination play units and stepping stones, a sandstone sundial, as well as traditional equipment like swings and slippery-dips. There are new loop paths, landscaping and seating are also provided for the comfort of parents.
