Ruse residents will soon be able to enjoy a modern upgrade to the play space at Cook Reserve.

Mayor George Brticevic said the new playground would be a substantial improvement for Cook Reserve.

“This new playground is going to be a magnificent place for parents, grandparents and carers to bring the kids down during an afternoon or weekend and enjoy a picnic,” Cr Brticevic said.

“Providing kids with access to somewhere where they can play in a modern and safe environment is a key part of our State of Play strategy which guides the development of new parks across our city,” he said.

“Cook Reserve will complement a number of upgraded or new parks recently opened or set to be completed in the coming months.”

Works have now started to build the new play space which will include:

  • Updated play equipment
  • Inclusive swing set
  • Picnic seats and shelters
  • New barbeque facility
  • Sandstone block seats
  • Shade sails
  • Exercise equipment
  • Tree plantings
  • Accessible toilet facility.

The park was designed following consultation with the Ruse community and incorporated feedback from residents.

The revamped park is expected to open in April.
