Recreation recap for May
Published on 22 May 2023
Ku-ring-gai Council has completed several recreation projects this month, with others to follow.
Lindfield Soldiers Memorial Park No. 1 Oval reopened this month for training and games, after an 18-month closure for resurfacing and regrading of the field and cricket wicket.
Over at West Pymble, an upgrade to the playground next to the Philip Mall shops has been completed.
The new playground has a slide with climbing tower attached and other new equipment, plus a nature play area.
The upgrade also includes new seating, accessible pathways and landscaping, litter bins and a bubbler.
At Allan Small Oval in Saiala Road East Killara two new tennis courts have been installed, with two others to follow at the Oval later this year.
Over at Killara Oval, another two new tennis courts are currently being constructed and expected to open to the public at the beginning of June.
The tennis courts can be booked by the public through the Council, with lighting available for night time play at Allan Small Oval.
Mayor Jeff Pettett said the Council would make a decision on the capital works budget for the new financial year at its June meeting.
“We are committed to extending the life of playgrounds and other recreation facilities wherever possible through upgrades such as these.”
He added that around $3.4 million had been budgeted for improvements to sportsfields and playgrounds in the 2023-2024 financial year, subject to final approval from the Council.
