Mulgoa residents will now have access to more playgrounds, ovals and sports courts as part of the NSW Government’s Share Our Space Program.
Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP today announced that following a successful trial over summer, more than 80 public schools, including Cecil Hills High School will open their gates these school holidays to allow everyone in the community to enjoy their playgrounds, sports courts and ovals.
“This is great news for families in Mulgoa as it not only will give parents and children access to more open green space, but also provide them with more options for school holiday activities,” Tanya Davies said.
Today’s announcement follows a successful trial of the program last summer
The $30 million Share Our Space Program follows Monday’s $120 million commitment by the NSW Government to secure strategic open spaces for public use and to build more than 200 new and improved playgrounds.
The announcements form part of the NSW Government’s new $290 million Open Spaces and Green Sydney package.
Tanya Davies said today’s announcement was a win/win for both the Mulgoa community and Cecil Hills High School.
“Participating schools will also receive a boost, with a $5000 grant that they can use to help upgrade their facilities for community and school use,” Tanya Davies said.
The playgrounds will be open from 8am to 6pm, 7 days a week, from 16 to 27 April 2018.
