A new playground will keep the kids of Hartley entertained for hours with swings, a climbing gym and more to be excited about.
A small group gathered on Tuesday, November 10 to celebrate the opening of the newly installed children's playground at the Hartley Historic School site.
According to Lithgow City Council the playground will give the community of Hartley a place to gather while keeping the young ones entertained.
These works were funded through Council's Village Improvement Plan and with the assistance of Hytech Quarries.
Lithgow mayor Ray Thompson said that it was great to see the community coming together.
"The land managers of the site are working hard to improve the facilities to make them more useful to the people in their community," he said.
"We are encouraged by groups within the villages of our LGA who come to us with plans and ideas for improving their villages."
The village improvement plans are part of Council's commitment to support the development of needed community infrastructure in the rural villages.
Lithgow City Council said that in consultation with communities, they hope to continue to make improvements to the outlying rural villages of Hartley, Tarana, Capertee, Cullen Bullen and Rydal.
