Newport’s Bert Payne Reserve Inclusive Playground on Sydney’s Northern Beaches features Proludic play equipment. On the opening day in December, 2016, the Northern Beaches Council Administrator Dick Persson AM said “This inclusive playground means kids of all abilities can play together on the same equipment, reducing any sense of separateness or inequality. A great aspect of this playground is that disability support organisation Northern Beaches Interchange, as well as local parents, have helped us develop it for a diverse range of kids.” Children from a local Special School were present on the opening day and were thrilled to discover the new playground.
