    What makes a great local playground? That’s the question Lake Macquarie City Council wants the community to answer as they plan the replacement of another two playgrounds in Lake Macquarie this financial year.

    Two existing playgrounds at Russell Reserve, Adamstown Heights, and Belmont Lions Park, Belmont, will be revamped as part of Council’s Asset Replacement Program.

    Swing sets, climbing structures, slides, balance beams, spring rockers and flying foxes are among the features of many of the new playgrounds throughout the City.

    Manager Asset Management Brendan Callander said outdoor play was an essential part of growing up and vital to health and wellbeing of families in Lake Mac.

    “We manage and maintain more than 120 playgrounds across the City,” Mr Callander said.

    “To ensure our playgrounds are safe and meet the needs of our community, we have an Asset Replacement Program in place to replace outdated equipment.

    “We are calling on the community to provide feedback on the types of play equipment they would like to see installed as part of the playground upgrades at Russell Reserve and Belmont Lion’s Park.”

    “We want to make sure the end result is what the local community wants in a safe, fun, exciting new playground.”

    The community is encouraged to visit shape.lakemac.com.au/lets-play-lake-macby 5pm, Friday 21 August to tell Council what pieces of equipment they would like to see installed at each playground.

    Council is forecast to spend $19.8 million in 2020-2021 for new and improved parks, playgrounds, sporting facilities and swim centres.
