PENRITH City Council is calling on the local community to have their say on the design of the playground as part of the $24M enhancement of Regatta Park.

Council is calling on Penrith residents to tell them what they would like to see included in the new playground through the Your Say Penrith online portal before February 21, 2020.
The preliminary design shows how Council will transform the current site into a beautiful open space that will bring extensive benefits to residents and visitors to Penrith through the delivery of a large green recreational space with improved access to the Nepean River for the community to enjoy.
The project is jointly funded with $15M from the NSW and Australian Governments as part of the Western Sydney City Deal’s Livability Program and $9M from Council.
The enhanced Regatta Park will feature an outdoor fitness park, picnic spaces, river terraces and a large playground for children with expansive views of the Nepean River.
Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler OAM said the park enhancements were identified during extensive community consultation on the Our River Masterplan in 2013, and Council is asking the community to have their say on the playground that is included in the design.
“Council has been working for many years to enhance Regatta Park after the community told us that they wanted an enhanced, green recreational space close to the river during an extensive consultation process on the Our River Masterplan,” Councillor Fowler said.
Cr Fowler said that the development of Regatta Park coincides with a number of other major projects in Penrith, including the recently announced $12M City Park, the design of which is also being informed by community consultation.
to comment on the Regatta Park design before 21 February 2020.
