Two brand new pieces of accessible playground equipment, a wheelchair-accessible carousel and bird nest swing have been installed at Gaggin Park playground in Suffolk Park this week.

The new equipment is the final stage of Council’s upgrade of the Suffolk Park playground which features an accessible car parking space, accessible toilets, pathways and bubbler, alongside the already popular Fire Engine climbing equipment.

The latest improvements were made possible thanks to $75,000 from the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play program fund and a further $135,000 investment from Byron Shire Council.

“We are really excited to be installing this fun, safe and age appropriate equipment that’s for everyone, of all abilities,” Council’s Director Infrastructure Services, Phil Holloway said.

“Integrating a more inclusive design into our park upgrades is the objective of the Everyone Can Play funding and it’s what we’re doing at every opportunity now, right across the shire. Our aim is to create spaces where everyone has a chance to participate and have fun.
