Visitors to the Camden Haven region have praised Port Macquarie-Hastings Council after viewing the upgraded park at Wall Reserve, North Haven.
Sydneysiders Debra and Mitchell Perry visited the park on Wednesday, July 3 and said it was great to see it had been rejuvenated.
"We've been visiting the area for the last 14 years and this is the second time the park has been upgraded," Mitchell said.
The couple commented on the reuse of tyres and natural timber as being fantastic additions to the park.
Feedback from the community has resulted in the region's playground designs moving away from traditional swings and slides.
The park features new playground equipment, swings, a nature play area, bike path and seating.
Rocks, boulders, climbing logs and other natural play elements are set to encourage kids to create their own fun.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council invited members of the community to give feedback on the playground's design during information sessions in 2018.
The new park at Lake Cathie Foreshore Reserve is proving to be a hit with its young crowd since it opened on Friday, November 9.
Playground upgrades were also completed at Laurieton Oval in July 2018.
