The new and improved Connie Lowe Reserve in Rouse Hill is now open for play – just in time for the July school holidays.

The upgraded park, located on Adelphi Street, was given the tick of approval by Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne and her five-year-old daughters Alexis and Maddison earlier this week, when they tested the equipment.

Mayor Byrne said she was happy to see one of The Shire’s more established parks receive a facelift.

“The new play equipment in Connie Lowe Reserve has been designed to suit most ages and abilities, and aims to foster creative play, as well as be dynamic and physically challenging for park users,” Mayor Byrne said.

“Overall, the renovated playground ticks all the boxes and it’s the perfect place for families to come together to enjoy a fun-filled day out, especially now that COVID-19 restrictions are easing.

“I’m so proud Council is investing in facilities like Connie Lowe Reserve that will be used by generations of Hills residents for years to come,” Mayor Byrne added.

The park’s new facilities include:

  • Shade sails
  • An additional swing set;
  • A large nest swing;
  • Nature timber play stepping logs;
  • Synthetic grass;
  • An accessible bubbler;
  • Improved pathways and
  • A handball court.

Connie Lowe Reserve is one of a number of parks which have recently undergone an upgrade, including Golden Grove Reserve, Macquarie Avenue Reserve and Hancey Farm Reserve.
