Just in time for the summer holidays, the new playground at Bangalow Parklands is open and children are invited to give it a test run.

The new playground features a new set of swings, a two-seat carousel which is perfect for getting giddy and a bird’s nest swing that will allow adults to swing with children.

There’s also a new climbing tower with nets, bridges and play panels including a musical feature that are all designed for stimulating little imaginations and encouraging creative play.

The original swings and spring toy were recycled from the old playground which had reached the end of its usable life in relation to safety and maintenance.

Volunteers in the Bangalow Parklands team make sure the area is a beautiful community space.

The new $75,000 playground is designed to meet accessible play guidelines and is the perfect accompaniment to the adventure playground which is just a hop, skip and a jump away.
