Cumberland City Council, in partnership with Western Sydney University, have now opened a newly refurbished Merrylands Memorial Park.
The playground has been retro-fitted with the first of its kind UV smart materials to protect children from heated play equipment.
We are delighted to be pioneers in creating a safe space for children and their families, particularly with communities facing unprecedented heat, drought and bushfire weather in recent times.
The new UV Smart Cool Playground cleverly combines new technology and physical play in an innovative environment for the community.
This project has been supported by Local Government NSW and grants funded by the NSW Government.
Softfall material has been donated by Polysoft and shade cover has been donated by Alfresco Shade and GALE Pacific.
