Council are excited to announce that the South Coast’s most anticipated playground, Boongaree Rotary Nature Play Park and Learn to Ride official opening is Saturday 22 January 2022.

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said this is Stage 1 of a far more ambitious play space and there is something here for everybody, both the young and the young at heart.

“There are slides, swings, climbing nets, and challenges for all ages. There is a flying fox, and we also have a wonderful learn to ride facility, for the youngsters to start learning to ride and improve their bike skills in a very safe environment,” Cr Findley said.

“We have over 30 parking spaces, with accessible parking for all abilities and lift and change facilities within the amenities building.”

“To date there has been a $6.5 million investment from Council, the Federal and State Government, along with Berry Rotary and the Berry community, who have provided fantastic help and support in getting the project to this stage,” said Cr Findley.

Future works include a new skate park and pump track, a dog park and improvements to the sporting facilities, including additional formal car parking for visitors in accordance with the Boongaree Master Plan.

In the meantime, visitors may need to utilise on street parking in the neighbouring streets or formal Council car parks in the Berry township.

Bring your picnic rug, enjoy the beautiful open spaces, we have BBQ facilities too so, head on down to Berry, the best playground on the South Coast – come, play and stay for the day.
