Did you know that Carlingford has the most number of playgrounds in any suburb (by far!) in the City of Parramatta? But unfortunately not many of them are near the large apartment blocks that have been built over the last few years near Carlingford Court and the train station. The upgrade of Edwin Ross Reserve will help to address this by adding a playground where one didn’t previously exist. And provide local families with somewhere nearby to play.
Construction started in July/ August and the playground should open in October. Here are some progress photos from late September. It looks like they’ve installed all the equipment and are just waiting to lay the rubber ground as well as finish off the landscaping.
Thankfully the upgraded park has a gated fence around it.
Finding Edwin Ross Reserve
The new playground is on the corner of Keeler St and Barellan Ave in Carlingford. There’s limited street parking on surrounding streets.
