Livvi's Place opening

I was delighted to join our community to open our new inclusive playground at Glenfield Park, Variety Livvi's Place Glenfield.

It was heart-warming to see all the smiling faces from the kids and their parents at the opening and I'm sure this playground will be used extensively by our community long into the future.

Livvi's Place playgrounds are the gold standard for inclusive play and this project will set the direction for future inclusive play spaces in our city.

This fantastic project was a partnership between Council, the NSW Government, Variety NSW/ACT and the Touched by Olivia Foundation.

Pump Track

We've had one big opening and this weekend we're onto another.

We'll be holding an official opening for the new pump track at Hollylea Reserve, Leumeah this Saturday, 1 May from 10am to 1;30pm.

It's going to be a fantastic community event with demonstrations from the Macarthur BMX club while Totem Skating will also be holding workshops at the skate park next to the pump track.

The design of the track allows for people of all skill levels to enjoy it. While people with no experience can get a lot out of it, the designers have told me the jump line on the track will be a test for even the most advanced riders.

Artist Exchange at the Arts Centre

If you're looking for a gift in the lead up to Mother's Day, head down to the Artist Exchange Makers Market at Campbelltown Arts Centre. There'll be a great range of unique gifts available including artworks, ceramics, jewellery and much more.

You can also grab a spot on the lawn or in the Japanese gardens and grab something to eat while you're there.
