$1.2 million Bonna Point Reserve Playground at Kurnell opens

A new playground in Bonna Point Reserve at Kurnell includes what the council believes to be the biggest slide in Sutherland Shire.

Other equipment ranges from a double flying fox, skating alley and rope climbing structure with "sky pod" features to an innovative multi-swing facility and toddler play unit.

While the playground caters for all ages, pre-teens and teenagers are particularly well served.

Sutherland Shire Council built the playground at a cost of $1.2 million.

Mayor Carmelo Pesce said strong input from the local community played a significant role in shaping the designs.

"Council engaged in an extensive program of community consultation, including with members of the Kurnell Progress & Precinct Resident's Association, Kurnell Public School students and parents and local teenagers, to ensure that we delivered an engaging space that appealed to visitors of all ages," he said.

Cr Pesce said the consultation process also helped to shape the design of shelters, drinking fountains, seating other features.
