Even better facilities and improved safety are coming to Bobbin Head Playground within the Gibberagong Precinct of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park with upgrades underway.
Member for Hornsby and Minister for Environment Matt Kean said the popular Bobbin Head playground has received a facelift which has improved the facilities along with safety for families.
“Bobbin Head is extremely popular and it’s great news to see it has doubled in size, with a range of exciting new equipment along with the important addition of a fence and extra shade,” Mr Kean said
“You will now find a six-metre-high activity climbing net, timber parkour deck challenge, rope fishnet and large platypus climbing structure, all nestled within new vegetation plantings.”
Access has been significantly improved with an all-weather accessible path network, disabled access swing with accessible and safety harness, four disabled parking bays and two park benches available to parents and disabled visitors.
“It gets pretty hot during summer, so kids are now protected with additional shade structures and new trees.
“Safety has also been improved with new fencing so families with children of all age ranges and abilities can safely enjoy the playground.”
The $365,000 Bobbin Head playground upgrade is part of the NSW Government’s largest ever investment in national park’s visitor infrastructure that is being delivered across NSW over the next three years.
“Construction is nearly completed on these upgrades and the playground will be ready to be enjoyed once lockdown restrictions ease,” Mr Kean said.
Bobbin Head is just one of the many destinations within Ku-ring-gai National Park which has a network of walking tracks for a variety of levels of ability where visitors can experience stunning Australian bushland and unique native animals right on Sydney’s doorstep.
Construction on the playground will be completed in the coming weeks and once the latest COVID-19 restrictions ease the playground will be open for all to enjoy. Please check alerts for closures, including playground closures, in NSW national parks before planning your visit.
