New playground opens in Pyalong

The swings are in, the slide is up and the lines are painted on the basketball half-court – the new Pyalong play space is ready for action just in time for the school holidays.

Situated in the heart of town, this new space is set to become a popular destination the community can enjoy.

Grab some mates for a friendly game of half-court basketball, watch the kids master the climbing frame or fly high on the swings, there’s even a nature play area with logs and stepping stones.

The new play space provides extra facilities for locals in the town centre and will also encourage visitors to spend more time in Pyalong, rather than just passing through.

Work started on the Pyalong Social Family Recreation Space at Town Centre Park in late March and the park was opened to the public for the first time on June 17.

The $120,000 fully Council-funded project was designed as a place to bring people together to socialise and to be active. The plans for the Pyalong Social Family Recreation Space were finalised following community input in 2019 and 2020.

Comments from Mayor Cr Rhonda Sanderson

"The play space will give locals a new place to come together and enjoy some outdoor activities in the town centre," she said.

"Pyalong has some great facilities in the main street already and this will add some exciting new features for locals and visitors to enjoy."

"We’re focused on providing outdoor spaces in our communities to encourage a healthy lifestyle and community connections.

"We also hope this new facility will encourage visitors to spend a little more time in Pyalong and drop into the local businesses while they are here."
