There are three new places for children to play in Macarthur.

Campbelltown Council has revamped the playgrounds at Spitfire Reserve in Raby and Thomas Clarkson and Young reserves in Eagle Vale.

The new play space at Spitfire Reserve has been designed to complement the 'airplanes of the world' theme used to name the suburb's streets.

The play equipment includes a helicopter combination unit on a rubber heli-pad and an aircraft run way and is suitable for children aged one to 12.

Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic said the council had additional play space upgrades planned throughout the year.

"Play is an important part of a child's development and we are working hard to deliver new exciting play spaces across the area," Cr Brticevic said.

"Play spaces like the new one at Spitfire Reserve also reflect the character and history of local suburbs.

"Larger district level play spaces are also planned for later this year at Glenfield and Milton Park in Macquarie Fields and Eagle Farm Reserve in Eagle Vale so people should stay tuned for more exciting announcements."

Thomas Clarkson Reserve features a combination unit with a slide and climbing elements, a double swing set, balance elements and a play table.

Young Reserve also includes a combination unit with a slide and climbing elements, a double swing set and a large basket swing.

All new or upgraded play spaces in Campbelltown are designed to utilise natural shade on the site.
