Our newest inclusive playground, Livvi’s Place Ryde, has had the first sod officially turned by Henry Perkins, assisted by the City of Ryde Mayor, Artin Etmekdjian, Federal MP John Alexander and Touched by Olivia’s founding Director John Perkins.

A fun morning tea was hosted by City of Ryde and Touched by Olivia at Yamble Reserve, on the site of the new playground. Local preschools, Cerebal Palsy Alliance and all the wonderfully generous stakeholders and supporters were in attendance to celebrate the next step in our journey for a special and socially inclusive place in the Northern Districts of Sydney.

Hargraves Landscaping will commence construction early September with a big party planned to launch Livvi’s Place Ryde in early December.

We would like to thank our generous partners and champions, who have helped make this project happen: City of Ryde, John Alexander MP, Victor Dominello MP, Andrew Constance MP, Communities for Communities, St George Foundation, Forming Circles, AECOM, Hyecorp Property Group, Crown International and Boral as well as a number of wonderful businesses in the community who have assisted and supported the project.
