FINAL PIECE OF THE PUZZLE FOR JINDABYNE’S
PLAYGROUND


Community members and school students today joined Member for Monaro John Barilaro and Snowy Monaro Regional Council Mayor Peter Beer to inspect and try out the new
inclusive flying fox in Jindabyne.
Mr Barilaro said when he joined the community to open Livvi’s Place at Banjo Paterson Park back in 2016, there was just one thing missing.
“We had one final touch to make to ensure this amazing playground reached its full potential,” Mr Barilaro said.
“I’m so glad to join the community today to celebrate this achievement. This playground is
already a special place but we can now be assured that it will bring our children even more smiles,”
The NSW Government committed $100,000 to the project, to ensure the Jindabyne community and visitors had the best playground possible.
Cr Beer said the playground will bring joy to children of all ages and abilities for many years
to come.
“The inclusive Livvi’s Place is such a fantastic space for local families and visitors of Jindabyne,” Cr Beer said.
Justine Perkins, Founder of the Touched by Olivia Foundation, said it is great to see the
smiles on children’s faces when they use the new flying fox.
“There’s nothing quite like the exhilaration of flying through the air and now, thanks to the
wonderful support of the NSW Government, visitors to Livvi’s Place can experience just that,” Ms Perkins said.
The NSW Government is committed to helping create spaces where everyone can play and relax.
A new round of funding is currently open for the Everyone Can Play program with $4 million
available for councils to apply for to create new and upgrade existing playgrounds where
everyone can play.
Applications are open until Wednesday, 11 December 2019.
