Livvi's Place playgrounds are special play spaces developed by the wonderful Touched by Olivia Foundation because they believe "every child needs play."
Touched by Olivia design and create truly inclusive playgrounds that benefit all members of society. Each Livvi's Place playground is accessible and intergenerational. They all have play equipment and amenities that can accommodate both able bodied and disabled children. There are accessible pathways, chill outs areas, sensory and tactile play spots as well as brightly coloured artworks throughout each of the fenced playgrounds. But most importantly the playgrounds are designed to encourage children and parents of all ages and abilities to play together.
Livvi's Place Five Dock
In Sydney we are very lucky to have a few Livvi's Place playgrounds, with more being built each year. At the moment you will find them in the following suburbs:
Five Dock: Timbrell Park - 19 Henley Marine Drive
Ryde: Yamble Reserve - Quarry Rd
Jordan Springs: Northridge Oval - Montague Drive
Livvi's Place Ryde
Playgrounds are coming soon to Castle Hill, Bankstown, Cronulla and Warragamba. There are also many other Livvi's Places in NSW too.
Touched by Olivia also consult with community partners like Stockland and as such you will find their "touch" at playgrounds like the cute one on the outside of the Stockland Mall in Baulkham Hills, and in the Elara housing development in Marsden Park.
Touched by Olivia also recognise that coffee and playgrounds go hand in hand and therefore they created Livvi's Cafes. Currently there are two cafes in Sydney at Five Dock and Elara. These social enterprise cafes serve up perfectly brewed Campos Coffee, light snacks and sweet treats. All profits from the cafes go back to the Foundation which they then use to expand their network of playgrounds.
