Looking for adventure in Allawah, head for Meade Park

A new $600,000 adventure playground was opened by Georges River Council this week at Meade Park, Allawah.

The all-inclusive adventure playground incorporates elements of play and learning for children as well as barbecue and shaded areas for passive recreation for adults.

The new Meade Park adventure playground was officially opened by Georges River mayor, Kevin Greene on Tuesday, July 9.

Councillor Greene said the new adventure playground will offer fun for everyone and encouraged residents and visitors to Allawah to head to Meade Park to check it out.

"The playground incorporates diverse zones for all ages and abilities, with activity zones for toddlers," Councillor Greene said.

"For the young and inquisitive, a sensory-focused play zone with stimulating and imaginative activities allows for social play and sensory learning," he said.

Kogarah Bay Ward Councillor Nick Katris, who initiated the project, expressed his pleasure at seeing the new playground finalised.

"The Meade Park adventure playground provides the local community with a much needed first-class asset which caters for a range of both passive and active recreational pursuits," Cr Katris said.

"Council went out to the community to find out what sort of inclusions they wanted to see at the new playground, and the final design was based on this consultation, to ensure their needs were met.

"The adventure playground provides elements of play and learning for children of all abilities and ages, while providing open spaces and enhanced landscaping.

"New shade structures, accessible picnic shelters and barbeque facilities have also been included for community members to enjoy," Cr Katris said.
