The residents of Young will soon be enjoying a new inclusive playspace, allowing kids of all abilities to play side by side. The Variety Livvi’s Place will offers a range of play options including a flying fox, sand play area, accessible spinner and climbing fort.
Local Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke launched the design with Mayor Brian Ingram at Tresillian Park. “It’s wonderful to get an idea of how this playspace will look when it’s complete, and I can’t wait to see the real thing,” Ms Cooke said. “This playspace will provide inclusive and social interaction, and create a focus for some enjoyable community occasions,” shared Ms Cooke.
Mayor Ingram thanked those members of the community who had participated in the consultation process in developing the playspace design. “As we all know playgrounds provide a great sense of community and we have clearly seen that on display at the recently upgraded playground in Boorowa. I look forward to seeing this project completed by the end of this year,” he said.
Variety Livvi’s Place at Tresillian Park is the latest project by Variety since joining forces with the Touched by Olivia Foundation to work with local communities all across Australia to build inclusive playspaces.
“At Variety we believe that all kids deserve a fair go, including the ability to play,” said Variety – the Children’s Charity NSW/ACT CEO, David Sexton. “Kids of all abilities should be able to experience the joy and benefits of playing together, and we’re proud to partner with Hilltops Council on this very important project for the Young community.”
