Hendrie Street Reserve Inclusive Playground
Park Holme

The Hendrie Street Reserve Inclusive Playground will be temporarily closed for 3 days to complete line-marking and pavement graphics, from Wednesday 5 December to Friday 7 December 2018.

The line-marking will provide directional guidance on the trike track and assist visually impaired people to navigate the site more easily.

The work is weather dependent and has been scheduled during the work week to minimise impact on the community.

We anticipate the work will be completed within that timeframe, however if the situation changes, we will notify the community through Facebook.

Help us decorate Penrith Court Reserve for Christmas.
