The new $370,000 Narara Valley Precinct Park will be opened by the Central Coast Council on July 28, with a community gathering and barbecue.
The new park and playground, on Willari Ave, features nature play opportunities, grassed areas, modern play equipment and sculptures. Council’s Group Leader of Customer and Community Relationships, Ms Judy Jaeger, said it was pleasing to see that the Narara Valley community now has access to the precinct park it deserves. “With the new Narara Valley Precinct Park funded from the sale of the area’s old community hall, this is a great example of how council is reinvesting funds into vital community services and facilities,” Ms Jaeger said. “The spacious, multi-use playground is located in a large reserve with plenty of open space for recreational and group activities.
“We’re very proud of the playground’s strong focus on nature play and the highly vegetated environment the park provides for children to explore,” she added. Narara Valley Precinct Park offers great accessibility for a broad range of ages and capabilities, as well as fantastic complementary facilities including public amenities, barbecues and picnic furniture. “This new park and playground truly has been a collaborative community effort, with over 200 local residents leaving their mark on the facility either via hand printing in the pathways or tree planting,” Ms Jaeger said. “We’d like to see as many people from the Narara Valley area down at the community get together to celebrate this wonderful piece of community infrastructure,” she concluded.
