North Sydney Council News: New Local Playground at Cremorne Point is a Winner for Local Kids!
A new playground in Cremorne Point has opened – and it has everything that kids have been missing during isolation.
The Sirius Street Playground, on Milson Rd, features a range of play equipment that caters to all levels of mobility including an all-access swing, a multi-person carriage rocker, a spinning cable pyramid and a custom designed cubby space with a talk-tube that connects with the lookout platform on the lower level.
The original playground, which was constructed in 2001, had a maritime theme. The new playground also incorporates this theme with a sandstone pelican sculpture and genuine maritime elements, including a ship’s bollard and a re-purposed pier post.
Carefully designed to work in with the steep landform and to capitalise on the shaded garden setting, the park also has a new graded pathway leading from the street, to the main level of the terraced play space.
North Sydney Mayor Jilly Gibson said playgrounds are treasured by the local community.
“Sirius Playground is a wonderful place for parents and grandparents to meet up and take their children for a play,” the Mayor said.
“It has everything you need to make it the perfect play space including ample seating, an accessible bubbler and bottle refill station, a range of play activities and it’s all fenced.
“I expect a lot of local families will be taking a longer visit to this exceptional playground.”
