Project details

Darrell Jackson Gardens is a well loved and used local park situated in the heart of Summer Hill. It offers variety of facilities including tennis courts, skate park, BBQ facilities, cricket pitch, and two playgrounds. The under fives fenced off playground is in sound condition, the unfenced playground situated in front of the Share Outside School Hours Care centre is getting an upgrade as part of a larger park upgrade project.
