A new playground is being built at Richill Park, next to the Karabi Neighbourhood Cottage.
This park is at the entrance to the pedestrian bridge over Cumberland Highway, near the intersection with Old Windsor Road.
The play equipment has been installed and now there’s just landscaping work to be done by the looks of things. Once we’ve been able to play test it, we will write a fuller review. In the meantime, here are some progress photos of the playground upgrade.
The play equipment looks like it is best suited to kids 5 years and older. And it’s a shame not to see anything for young kids. There is no shade over the playground, though there’s some natural shade in the afternoon. Plus, there are no toilets or a bubbler here. But there is a nice large grassed area to kick a ball around on.
But thankfully the new Park Play Van will start visiting Richill Park on Wednesdays from 10am to 12pm once the playground upgrade is complete.
Here are some photo of the old playground – which was desperately in need of some tlc!
