A community fun day this Saturday will celebrate the reopening of Camden’s bigger and better Curry Reserve water play space in time for the warmer weather ahead.
The fun day is being organised by Camden Council and will be on from10am to 1pm at Curry Reserve, located at Camden Valley Way, Elderslie.
There will be a free sausage sizzle as well as jumping castles and glitter tattoos for the kids.
As residents will find out on Saturday, the Curry reserve water play space is now better than ever following the makeover, which includes new wheelchair-accessible change facility, adult hoist and new toilet, shower and change room amenities.
There is also new wet wheelchairs, which residents can use to play in the water elements of the space, more shade, seating and barbecue facilities.
“The accessible amenities building is a fantastic addition to an already well-loved space,’’ says Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli.
In other Camden news, local history, artwork and culture will be on offer this Saturday as part of Unlock Camden celebrations in the forecourt of Macaria in John Street.
The inaugural community history open day will run between 11am and 4pm.
Residents will have the opportunity to unlock stories of the region’s history and discover initiatives, places and events they never knew existed.
And the Alan Baker Art Gallery’s spring exhibition, which officially opens this Thursday will also be in full swing by then, so you can check that out while you’re there.
