Penrith City Council has completed an upgrade of the David Currie Playspace on Banks Drive Reserve in St Clair.

This project was funded by Penrith City Council, the Australian Government through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, and the NSW Government through the Everyone Can Play grant.

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.  

The inclusive playspace is named in honour of the late David Currie, a passionate disability advocate who made a significant contribution to the local community. It will be a place that celebrates his life and creates a space for families and friends of all ages and abilities to play, relax and connect.  

The fully fenced inclusive playspace features a variety of play equipment including:

  • an accessible spinner 
  • climbing net and slide 
  • multi-bay swing 
  • toddler specific multi-play unit
  • sensory play
  • wheelchair accessible trampoline and, 
  • an inclusive double flying fox.  

The upgrade also includes new pathways, fitness equipment, basketball half court, seating, an accessible bike track, shade sails, landscaping, picnic shelter and car park upgrades.

Council has completed a new amenities building which includes an adult change facility, accessible toilet and ambulant toilet.
