Exciting New Children’s Playground Now Open at Manly Dam

By Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 17 Jul 2020
An all-inclusive children’s playground has officially opened at Manly Dam.

Part of the Connecting All Through Play program, construction began in March this year, with the finishing touches applied this week.

It follows similar all-abilities playgrounds opened by Council in recent years at Lionel Watts in Frenchs Forest, Collaroy Beach, Narrabeen’s Berry Reserve, Newport Beach and Manly Beachfront.

Key features include a climbing frame, a tunnel and bridge, swings, a carousel, seating for parents and articulate landscaping of the green surrounds.

Additionally, materials such as wood and stone were deliberately chosen for the project to blend into the stunning natural environment.

Northern Beaches Council Mayor Michael Regan is anticipating positive feedback from the community.

“Manly Dam has always been a popular spot for families to come together, and this fantastic playground will only enhance that experience.

“The site was first scoped as a potential venue for a playground back in 2017, so I thank our residents and guests for their patience, these projects don’t happen overnight.

“We approached three local schools for feedback, and as always, factored in extensive community engagement before proceeding with the project.

“I also love the fact it is an all-inclusive playground, Council prides itself on catering to as many people as possible, and we were successful in delivering that outcome at Manly Dam,’’ the Mayor said.

Other community playgrounds were recently upgraded at North Narrabeen’s Birdwood Park and Allambie Oval. Avalon’s Dunbar Park is next, with work expected to be completed by August.
