Heritage Park has been redesigned for true adventure, while paying homage to The Hills’ early colonial history.

Livvi’s Place at Bernie Mullane Reserve
Livvi’s Place continues to be a top destination for Hills families after Council installed shade sails over the recently built all-abilities playground.
Three new brightly coloured sails were installed to provide much needed shade over the water play area and another two were constructed over the playground.
The new and improved playground boasts a super-cool water play area, rope climb, sensory musical play equipment, basket swing, mini-trampolines and so much more. The original playground still remains, allowing kids to explore every aspect of the park.
