Lithgow Adventure Playground

Source: Lithgow City Council
Posted: 4 Jul 2018
The tender for construction of the Lithgow Adventure Playground has just been awarded by Lithgow City Council with works to commence soon.

Following a competitive tender process, Council voted on 25 June 2018 to award the Adventure Playground construction contract to Coordinated Landscapes Pty Ltd, a highly regarded landscaping company with experience in custom-built playground construction.

“The Endeavour Park Adventure Playground is a very exciting and important development for Lithgow,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Stephen Lesslie. “Designed by award winning playground designer Ric Mcconaghy to incorporate a mining theme unique to Lithgow, Council is looking forward to construction commencing and hopefully for it to be open for the January 2019 school holidays.”

This large playground will have many features that will appeal to a range of children and interests. The centerpiece will be a 5.5 meter high climbing tower, much like a mine poppet-head with climbing ropes and tube slide. A 22 meter long dual flying fox will also get the adrenaline flowing.  Many exciting and interesting features, not generally seen in typical playgrounds that will encourage children to explore and to develop a greater appreciation of the heritage and environment of Lithgow.

The playground design incorporates universal access principles including accessible pathways, facilities and amenities, contrasting color and texture in materials to aid navigation, extension of seating areas to accommodate wheelchairs, strollers and walking frames.

Accessible harnesses on the swings and flying fox, the accessible carousel, cubby area and mouse wheel will ensure that these are available to all.

 “This regional level playground is great news for local people who want to spend family time together in an interesting setting, but we hope it will also attract visitors from outside Lithgow to come to the playground, and while they are here, to experience the other wonderful sites and opportunities that Lithgow has to offer,” continued the Mayor.  

“I would like to acknowledge the funding provided for this project through the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 1 and from Centennial Coal which have made this project possible,” concluded the Mayor.
