Bermagui all-inclusive playground open

The all-inclusive playground in Bermagui’s Apex Park is open in time for the Easter break and school holidays.

Member for Bega, Andrew Constance welcomed the delivery of this playground, which was funded under the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund to the tune of $376,507 with a contribution from Council.

“People of all ages, abilities and mobility levels need outside activities for play and social reasons,” Mr Constance said.

“This playground will provide our local and visiting children and families with a functional, safe and imaginative play space.

“It will also complement the existing open spaces and beautiful natural environment to provide a meeting place for the community.”

Bega Valley Shire Council’s Recreation and Natural Assets Coordinator, John Turville said Apex Park was selected as the preferred site following an extensive community consultation process.

“This inclusive playground has been designed to the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play guidelines, which means all paths and park furniture are accessible to all as well as the inclusion of two accessible carparking bays.

“It features play items that will enable all children to play together in an environment focussed on inclusiveness.

“Play items include a dual cableway with inclusive seat, an inclusive carousel, trampoline, rope tower with slide, dual bay swings with basket swing and nature-based play items, such as a hollow log, balance logs and log steppers.”
