Livvi’s Place Jindabyne opened for all on Sunday 20th March. This exciting new inclusive playspace is located at Banjo Paterson Reserve, Kosciuszko Road, Jindabyne.
Livvi’s Place Jindabyne is the result of a partnership with Snowy River Shire Council, in conjunction with national charity, Touched by Olivia Foundation, and is supported by the NSW Government.
Touched by Olivia relies on volunteers to help realise the dream of inclusion. Local community driver Louise Williams is a long term resident who has seen this 5 year project come into fruition. Louise went to council with a vision and from there has worked with Touched by Olivia to drive this project, leading fundraising campaigns, assisting in design and coordinating volunteer events. She has stamped her spot at Livvi’s Place with a paver that she has purchased reading ‘Be the change you want to be in the world’.
Local MP John Barilaro has championed Livvi’s Place from the very beginning. Mr Barilaro believes that the children of the region are the real winners here, and applauded the project’s initiative to bring together both state and local government with the community.
Mayor John Cahill from Snowy River Council said, “I would like to acknowledge all those involved in delivering this project. It is a great example of the importance of working in partnership with our community, TBO, State and Local government. Council is delighted to have a great new asset for our community that will be accessible for all abilities.”
