I have a motion up for consideration at the next Ordinary meeting of Council on Tuesday 26 June, being:
"That Council considers the inclusion of the following works at Bardon Park in the 2018/19 Budget, and these works to be funded from the Cash-in-Lieu for Public Open Space Trust Fund:
1. An access ramp for persons with a disability and stairs from the upper level carpark and playground to the lower level playground and toilets;
2. A wheelchair accessible swing in the upper level playground; and
3. A long slide built into the hill from the upper level playground down the slope.”
Bardon Park is one of the City’s best Regional Playgrounds, in my personal opinion, and it is such a shame that in this area we have a steep topography and no consideration has been given to people with disabilities. On the top level we have ACROD parking bays and some pathways, but there is no way for those with a mobility issue to be able to get to the lower level, where the ablutions facility is located. In addition, the City currently has no wheelchair accessible swing in any of its public playgrounds. I hope that my colleagues will support an inclusive and accessible playground and picnic area for the City of Bayswater.
