This petition is to gather signatures in support of building a fence (including a secure gate) around the perimeter of Centennial Park and Nijong Ninja Park Playgrounds to keep our youngest residents safe from traffic, the adjoining waterways, and other dangers.

Parents & Carers of especially young children (under 5), are currently avoiding many of our existing outdoor play areas due to safety concerns.  Centennial Park and Nijong Ninja Park playgrounds have only partial fencing and are still exposed to busy roads and waterways.

We want to encourage children and familes to have an active and healthy lifestyle.  What better way to do this than to have safe outdoor community play areas.

The community needs a good number of small fenced playgrounds with gates where parents and carers can supervise multiple young (active & fast moving) children.  Especially in circumstances for example, where mothers need to breastfeed a younger sibling and not have a toddler run unimpeded towards fast moving cars.

We would like to call on Snowy Monaro Regional Council to take note of its concerned community members and install complete fencing with gates around these two playgrounds.  We should not need an accident to happen to prove that a fence is needed around the perimeter of these playgrounds.  Our children deserve better than a wait-and-see approach until something bad happens.
