Yamble Reserve is a ‘suburban oasis’ with formally planted garden beds and deciduous trees providing colour in autumn. Picnic shelters overlook lawns which are perfect for kicking a ball around while the barbeque is heating up. There are two parking areas, with the one off Clermont Avenue providing easy access for visitors with mobility restrictions.
Livvi’s Place is an all-inclusive playground where children of all abilities can play, learn and socialise together.
Livvi’s Place combines traditional play equipment with purpose-built play and landscape elements, providing a safe, outdoor environment for children and carers.
Themed play zones that stimulate, calm and provide sensory interest for children with physical, intellectual and emotional disabilities, are a feature of the design.
There is also a fully accessible amenities block that includes both child and adult change tables.
The successful completion of Livvi’s Place was the result of a partnership between the City of Ryde and the not-for-profit Touched by Olivia Foundation. Support also came from AECOM, the State and Federal governments and many other sponsors.
