Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch with residents at Jirramba Playground

Users of the Jirramba Playground at Saratoga can look forward to an upgraded toilet facilities thanks to $150,000 in funding through the NSW Government’s Local Small Commitments Allocation Program.

Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said funding had been granted to Central Coast Council for the upgrade with the current facilities dilapidated and not fit for purpose.

“Jirramba Playground is already a great place to take the family and enjoy some quality time in the outdoors, so this funding that we have secured will further improve the playground as a whole,” he said.

Crouch said it was important all local playground and parks have adequate facilities to meet the needs of the users and congratulated both Council and 3 Villages Community Group, which has advocated for the upgrade.

A spokesperson said Council is delighted to be advised of the grant for the upgrade.

“The upgrading of this public facility in this very popular park will be greatly appreciated by the community,” the spokesperson said.
