The Armstein Crescent playspace in Werrington will receive an upgrade in 2022, funded by Penrith City Council. Construction will commence in May 2022.  

The new and improved playspace has been designed with help from the local community to ensure it meets the needs of residents and children and can be enjoyed by them for years to come.  

Community interest and feedback on the initial themes for the upgrade was overwhelming. Over 50 surveys were completed, with large support for Theme 2 - ‘Trail Blazer” and new climbing equipment. Feedback also highlighted that the playspace should be designed to appeal to a range of ages, predominantly 0-12 years, and that shade should be included in the upgrade.

The final concept retains the existing play equipment, rubber softfall, picnic shelter and picnic setting. New play elements include a timber and rope “trail” to suit younger ages, a climbing “cube” that allows older kids to traverse around and climb over, new concrete edging that doubles as a trike and scooter track, accessible seating and shade in the form of a shade structure over play elements and new trees.

Penrith City Council has 156 playspaces across the Local Government Area. Council has a commitment to improve our playspaces and is carrying out an asset renewal program to improve 40 local playspaces over five years.
