Waverley Council today celebrated the official opening of its upgrade of Clarke Reserve Playground, Vaucluse.

Following consultation and the development of concept plans, grant funding to the value of $100,000 was received in February 2019 from the State Governments, Stronger Communities Fund, to upgrade the play space.

Features of the upgrade include:

  • A new accessible path connecting the playground to the footpath
  • New playground equipment including a spinner
  • More trees and other planting
  • Barrier fencing to deter dogs from entering the playground

Mayor of Waverley, Paula Masselos and Member of Vaucluse, Gabrielle Upton, cut a ribbon to officially celebrate the completion of works.

Mayor Masselos said Clarke Reserve is one of Waverley’s most loved play spaces and families are enjoying the new-look facilities.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Council was unable to host an event last year when the upgrade was completed.

Mayor Masselos and Gabrielle Upton celebrate with Waverley Councillors Leon Goltsman, Will Nemesh and Sally Betts.
