Waterloo playground reopening

I will be joined dozens of children and their parents to reopen a small playground in Waterloo – located next to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Primary.

The revamped playground – which attracts hundreds of kids from the local community – now includes an orange embankment slide stretching down the hill, a new swing, bouncy seesaw, complex climbing frame and dizzying spinning bowl.Opening Waterloo playground.

Open spaces and great play equipment are vital for people raising families in the inner city.

We have around 330 small parks and playgrounds across the inner city and surrounding suburbs, and the City improves the parks most in need every year.

Our recent upgrade of Redfern Park and Oval, the installation of the award-winning all abilities playground at Sydney Park and the skate park and soon-to-be-opened Youth Centre at Waterloo Oval are examples of the high-quality work the City is doing.

Lillian Fowler Reserve in Newtown and Pinkstone Playground in Erskineville have also recently been upgrade.

I hope you’ll be able to help celebrate the opening of the new-and-improved park on Friday 4 May from 3-4pm.

Uncle Max will be performing a traditional smoking ceremony; there will be a Welcome to Country dance by local students, and free face painting, snack packs, a rainbow parachute and group games.

Two weeks after getting it wrong, the Daily Tele 'clarifies' their errors. But today's effort gets it wrong too. Despite claims in this 'clarification', the Tele always knew @cityofsydney was not involved in this project because we and CoDesign Studio told them so from the beginning. They won't let the facts get in the way of their agenda.

This is Mary Veronica, the new tunneling machine which will help flood-proof Green Square. Anyone living in or passing through the Green Square area during April's torrential rains would remember chest-high water and flooding. Work has commenced on a new 2.4km underground stormwater drain to reduce the damage of such floods and help make this area a great place for thousands of people to live and work safely. At a cost of more than $90 million, this project is a key component of the City’s $440 million transformation plan for new infrastructure and community facilities.
