A new all-ages playground with rubber soft fall and shade structures and accessible pathway networks are part of a $1.9 million upgrade of Apex Park which was recently opened.
The development, which included a $24,000 grant contribution from the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for tree planting, has also seen the Castlereagh Street park receive new park furniture, installation of picnic facilities and shelters and a memorial area.
Liverpool mayor Wendy Waller said the tree plantings at Apex Park support council's vision to pave the way to a greener, more active and vibrant city centre.
"We got the bulk of the building works done during coronavirus restrictions, which is a major achievement," she said.
"There is so much activity and development taking place across Liverpool - as Apex Park reopens, works to build Stante Reserve Waterplay Park in Middleton Grange have commenced and are expected to be completed by March 2021."
Other major works underway in Liverpool include:
- The $16.2 million redevelopment of Lurnea Community Hub - Phillips Park which will be part funded with $13.2 million from the Western Sydney City Deal Liveability Program.
- Construction of the $9 million Cirillo Sporting Facility in Middleton Grange which is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
