Inclusive Playground Dedicated to David Currie

St Clair residents and school children can enjoy their new inclusive playspace after the official opening this week.

Formerly known as Banks Drive Playground, the new playspace has been renamed in honour of the late David Currie who was a passionate disability advocate for Penrith. The inclusive playspace invites people of all ages and abilities to play, stay and relax.

Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said the playspace is a wonderful reflection of David’s passion for making Penrith more accessible for all community members.

“David was an active member of Council’s Access Committee and worked tirelessly in this role to ensure people with disabilities could engage in a more fulfilling civic life,” Cr Hitchen said.

The final design was developed in consultation with local residents and school children, with many of their ideas incorporated into the design to ensure the needs of children and parents of children with different abilities were met and that the playspace would be a lasting legacy they could be proud of.

An emergency plan can help, but if you don’t know where to start, you’re not alone. The FREE Get Prepared app includes tips on how to stay calm, find important information, save key contacts and helps to pin-point what you could do and where you could go in a flood event. With disasters becoming more frequent, it has never been more important to get prepared.
