Berrima Playground

Berrima Playground Upgrade

After taking on this project in mid-2017, Berrima Rotary was successful in obtaining an initial grant of $30,000 in April 2018 to kick off the Playground Upgrade in the Berrima Marketplace Park to make the existing playground more accessible for youth with disabilities. Rotarian and past President Derek White then prepared another grant application in partnership with WSC and obtained a further $242,000 grant for the project. The playground upgrade will include wheelchair accessible footpaths and specially design easy-access pieces of equipment such as in-ground trampolines.

The DA was finally approved in October 2018 after a number of Heritage issues were addressed and the design layout finalised. After a protracted tendering process due to COVID-19, work is due to commence on the upgrade in Aug/Sep 2020 and completion is expected Oct 2020. The final facility will be clearly signed to recognise the overall contribution of Berrima District Rotary and also a significant donation from a Moss Vale Rotary Club member.
