Ashfield Park's Equal Access Playground and Accessible Footpath Project


The Ashfield Park playground is full of fun equipment for children of all abilities. Equal access pathways have been added to the park along with similar pathways in Hammond Park, Centenary Park and Robson Park. This project is sponsored by the Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs. Ashfield Council has also provided project funding.
