Adventure Playground

Lithgow City Council resolved at the Ordinary Meeting of Council held 27 October 2014 to consult with the community on a proposal to construct an adventure playground at Endeavour Park Lithgow and to allocate funding for concept design.

After considering a number of sites, Council has selected Endeavour Park as its preferred option due to:

  • Its prominent and central location.
  • Proximity to child and youth populations and areas of potential population growth.
  • Visibility for visitors and passing tourist traffic.
  • It has sufficient available land.
  • Availability of existing facilities including toilets, parking and utilities.
  • The park’s sloping topography is conducive for developing an interesting playground design.

Council would like to hear the community’s views on this proposal and have developed a survey to capture community feelings regarding the project. Click here for survey
