Inclusive Place to Play on the Way for Clontarf
Children and families on the Northern Beaches will have a fantastic new place to relax and play once the COVID-19 crisis passes, thanks to $200,000 in funding from the NSW Government.
Member for Manly James Griffin said Northern Beaches Council is one of 30 successful councils to benefit from the latest round of funding from the Everyone Can Play initiative that helps create inclusive playgrounds across NSW.
“The funding will help deliver the new playground at Clontarf Reserve, in partnership with Northern Beaches Council,” Mr Griffin said.
“While many of our beaches and playgrounds are closed at the moment to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community, it’ll be important that everyone will get a chance to play once they re-open.”
“Inclusive playgrounds provide wonderful spaces for families and friends of all ages and abilities to play, relax and connect, and this funding will help make our community more inclusive than ever before.”
Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes said the COVID-19 crisis had highlighted the importance of open spaces to the community’s health and wellbeing.
“This latest round of funding will help keep the economy moving in these uncertain times and create great spaces for families and children to enjoy once this crisis is behind us,” Mr Stokes said.
This round of funding from the Everyone Can Play program will help build 18 new inclusive playgrounds and upgrade 19 existing playgrounds, with $4 million in NSW Government funding matched dollar-for-dollar by local councils.
