‘Livvi’s Place at Yamble Reserve’ is an all-inclusive playground for children of all abilities to play, learn and socialise together.
This inspiring project has been a year in the planning and shows that great things can be achieved when the whole community pulls together to work for a common cause. Join us to celebrate the opening of Livvi’s Place.
The big day has arrived, and our fifth Livvi’s Place is opening with a massive party tomorrow – Sunday 2 February. Get down to Yamble Reserve, on Quarry Road at Ryde and be one of the first to play on Australia’s newest inclusive play space, spread over an acre and costing $1.5 million.
