Barrier urged at playground to help safety

EXTRA safety measures have been called for to keep families safe at the Carinya Road playground in Picnic Point.

Canterbury Bankstown Council will investigate measures such as partial fencing or barriers to protect the playground and its visitors from the adjacent road, while still allowing people to enjoy walking by.
The request for improvements, which came from Cr Linda Downey after concerns were raised about safety, is consistent with the council’s Playground and Play Spaces Strategic Plan that recommends “play spaces will generally not be fenced unless there are risks associated with traffic or water bodies”.
Cr Downey says that while she understands generally play spaces are located to be safe and accessible and to avoid the need for fencing, this site is very close to what is at times a very busy Carinya Road and a bus stop only metres away.
“I am proud of the many playgrounds and play spaces across our City both big and small and Covid has shown how important these places are with many young families escaping the lockdown to get outside,” she said.
