Upgrading a popular playground so everyone can play

We are upgrading Poppy Park at the Forestville Memorial Playing Fields to provide the community with a new and inclusive, fun and challenging play space for all ages and abilities.

The upgrade will be partially funded through the NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment's (DPIE) Everyone Can Play grant program which supports the creation of inclusive public open spaces for adventure and play.

The project will improve accessibility and safety and inspire more social interaction for all generations. The play space theme will pay homage to the memorial nature of the park and feature natural elements and materials.

Important components of the project are an upgrade to the equipment within the playground and improved access to the public amenities.

Features of the upgrade include:

  • additional inclusive playground equipment elements
  • introduction of more nature-based play themes
  • accessible picnic area with seating, barbeque and shelter

The proposal was publicly exhibited between Friday 15 July and Sunday 14 August 2022. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.

Feedback is being reviewed and a Community Engagement report will be prepared.
