The final touches are currently being completed on the new Storey Park Community Centre and Playground, which is set for a grand opening on Australia Day.

“The community has waited a long time for this and there is a lot of excitement amongst our residents,” Hornsby Shire Mayor Philip Ruddock said.

“One of the most rewarding aspects of this job is to see something so important become a reality, having watched it advance from an idea on paper.

“This is a very special facility, as it will help us to meet the growing needs of the local community.

“In a world that is ever more fast-paced and fractured, it is vital that we retain these community spaces – similar to the town square and communal fireplace of old – where people can come together.

“I would like to invite everybody to join us to celebrate the opening on Australia Day at our family event from 1pm-5pm, where we will be able to test out the new facilities together.

“It will be a particularly special day for the 75 people who will formally become Australian citizens.”

Storey Park’s new state-of-the-art space includes:

  • multipurpose rooms, ideal for a wide range of events and activities
  • park facilities with a children’s bike path
  • plenty of shade and seating
  • barbecue and picnic areas
  • onsite parking
  • fully landscaped surrounds including over 100 new trees
  • a fenced inclusive play environment for various age groups, featuring an adventure area and shade covered play equipment for younger children.

“It’s hard to pick a single highlight, but I’m particularly pleased about the inclusive play area,” Mayor Ruddock said.

“In all of our new playgrounds we make a special effort to offer a fun space for everybody, regardless of their age or abilities, and this is no exception.”
