Clifton Hill families will have a new playground that can be enjoyed by kids of all abilities, thanks to funding from the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Richmond Richard Wynne today announced $200,000 to build an all-abilities playground at Clifton Hill Primary School – creating a shaded, sensory space with a variety of surfaces that all kids will be able to enjoy.

The new playground will be connected by a wheelchair-accessible path and will enable children of all ages and abilities to run, roll, climb, explore and have fun.

The playground will be open to the whole community, giving children who can’t access other playgrounds in the area a place to enjoy.

The school is a passionate supporter of children with disabilities, being a recipient of the National Disability Award for Excellence in Improving Educational Outcomes.

Funding for the project is from the Labor Government’s Community Support Fund, which supports a range of programs and projects in the community.
