Greens press release: Liberty swings for Penrith

Greens East Ward candidate, Peta Holmes, welcomes the recent launch of new outdoor fitness zones in Glenmore Park, which she believes are a “cheaper, more accessible alternative for those who are looking to improve their fitness”.

“It’s always good when we’re seeing initiatives to get people out into, and enjoying, the community.”

It’s with this in mind that Peta is calling on Penrith City Council to continue with the good work and introduce liberty swings into local parks and playgrounds.

“Liberty swings give people in wheelchairs the opportunity to play on a swing, which the rest of us have been able to take for granted.

“Having access to liberty swings would mean that kids in wheelchairs wouldn’t have to feel left out when going to the park. They could have fun, just like every other kid.”

Peta strongly believes that having liberty swings in Penrith would be a big step toward improving the lives of local kids who are in wheelchairs.

“Liberty swings are a way of helping kids in wheelchairs to socialise with others, as well as letting them know that they are an important part of our society.

“They are a simple yet extremely important way that we can make Penrith a more inclusive and welcoming place for all of its residents.”
