The Penrose Crescent playspace in South Penrith 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 upgrade was overwhelming. Over 50 surveys were completed, with large support for Theme 2 - ‘Trike Village'. The playspace will feature a network of play roads which wind from toddler-town play buildings, and around the play equipment including swings and climbing geode. Children will have to pay attention to the play road signs and road markings to navigate the area with other users. It will be great fun and a fantastic opportunity to learn about road rules and safety.

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.
