A fantastic, colourful new inclusive play space is now open at Glenfield for all kids in the region to enjoy.
The new playground - called Variet yLivvi's Place Glenfield - was officially opened last month with hundreds of kids taking to the new equipment.
Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic said the new space set the gold standard for inclusive play in the region and would be a centrepiece of the Glenfield area for many years to come.
"Every child, regardless of age or ability, should have the opportunity to play in a safe and welcoming environment which is why I'm delighted that we have opened Campbelltown's first inclusive playground at Glenfield Park," he said.
"Parents, grandparents and carers now have a fantastic, modern park with plenty of shade to get out and about and take the kids to enjoy physical play and social interaction."
Variety's Head of Inclusive Play, Kim Becherand, said they were thrilled to open the new playground.
"At Variety, we are passionate about every child experiencing play in their local community where they can grow and learn, make friends and thrive," she said.
"This works toward Variety's vision - for all children to attain their full potential.
"We have also worked closely with Campbelltown Council and Place Design Group to bring this exquisite play space to life, reflecting the voices of the kids of Campbelltown who told us how they like to play and what they would need to make it a space everyone could enjoy."
