The newly invigorated Christopher Reserve in Baulkham Hills was officially reopened to the public last week.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said extensive upgrades to the local pocket park were part of The Hills Shire’s ongoing commitment to providing fun, family-friendly spaces to be enjoyed by all.

“New improvements to the park include a new play unit, nest swing, basketball hoop and concrete pad, as well as additional pathways,” Mayor Byrne said.

“The swing set was retained, but we’ve added a baby seat so that the park can cater to a range of ages and abilities. 

“And we’ve installed a picnic setting, and new native trees and shrubs have been planted to provide shade and natural greenery.

“I’m incredibly proud that this Council is investing in facilities like Christopher Reserve and ensuring The Hills’ reputation continues to be a great place to live, grow and raise a family,” Mayor Byrne added.

New playgrounds have also been planned at Brunette Drive Reserve in Baulkham Hills, River Oak Circuit Reserve in Kellyville, James Greenwood Reserve in Castle Hill, and Aiken Road Reserve and Larchmont Place Reserve in West Pennant Hills.
