Work starts on Robert Pymble Park upgrade
Published on 19 September 2022
The playground in Pymble will be closed for around four months while major work takes place.
The upgrade in Robert Pymble Park means a new playground will be ready for the summer holidays.
Accessible toilets, new landscaping and drainage will cap off improvements to the popular park and powerlines will be installed underground around the park’s perimeter.
The new playground design is themed around the area’s former use as a fruit farm by its namesake Robert Pymble. It follows a period of consultation with the local community on the design.
Playground equipment will include a tractor, a farm-inspired climbing frame and fruit shaped rockers.
Other highlights of the new playground are seating, picnic areas and cycle parking, plus a circuit track for younger children to ride scooters and bikes.
Mayor Jeff Pettett said the new playground would be accessible to all children, in keeping with the Council’s philosophy of inclusivity.
“We are also starting work soon on another new playground at Kendall Village Green next to Philip Mall in West Pymble.”
The Mayor added that weather permitting, the playground at Robert Pymble Park would reopen in time for Christmas.
“It will be a great place for families to gather during the summer holidays.”
