Coleman Park – Official Opening


Last Wednesday 24 April 2024 thanks to a NSW Government Everyone Can Play Grant, Upper Lachlan Shire Mayor, Pam Kensit, Upper Lachlan Shire Council CEO, Alex Waldron and Council officials joined The Honourable Bob Nanva, MLC to officially open the new inclusive Coleman Park playground located on Goulburn Street, Crookwell.

The Honourable Bob Nanva, MLC said“I am very pleased that the residents of Crookwell will benefit from the Everyone Can Play scheme. All kids benefit from having access to high-quality playgrounds and I’m glad we could support Council’s work to deliver this important facility to local families.”

This exciting addition marks a significant stride in Council’s ongoing commitment to providing safe, inclusive and high-quality open spaces in our community. With the unofficial opening in December 2023, residents have already been enjoying the new playground at Coleman Park which has proven to be a success.

Upper Lachlan CEO Alex Waldron said; The new playground at Coleman Park offers an array of accessible play equipment catering to children aged 2 – 12 years old, including climbing structures, slides, and swigs.  Softfall material ensures safety, while thoughtfully designed seating, landscaping, and pathways improve access and add to the overall appeal of the playground.

The playground has been a great addition to the Crookwell community and is been enjoyed by both locals and visitors to experience.
