Parramatta’s First All-Inclusive Playground and Water Play Park Opens

  • Family

Ollie Webb Reserve in Parramatta is now home to an all-inclusive kids playground. 

The $1.8 million regional-size playground, which received $300,000 of funding from the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund, promises to provide a place for children of all ages and abilities to enjoy year round. 

At the grand opening event, City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Andrew Wilson said he was delighted to see the unique playground become a reality.

“Parramatta has terrific parks, and it is very pleasing to see we are opening them up to more children,” Cr Wilson said.

Touched by Olivia (a charity that works with government and other organisations to create inclusive play spaces) were consulted throughout the design process. 

The playground features a large variety of activities and equipment, including wide embankment slides, accessible carousel and sand pit, water play elements, and a supportive swing.

The Ollie Webb Reserve all-inclusive playground features the third water play park in the Parramatta Local Government Area (along with James Ruse Reserve in Harris Park and Philip Ruddock Water Playground in Dundas Valley).
