Cultivating community and well being in Ocean Shores by creating a playscape at Waterlily Park .

Waterlily Community Playscape group was established by local volunteers to build a playground area by the community at Waterlily Park, in Ocean Shores, NSW, Australia.

Since May 2015, the group has been meeting regularly to progress the project.After launching phase 1 of the project which included installing a playground, we are now entering the second phase of the project: additional equipment (shade sails, flying fox, a tree house and a fairy chair). This initiative is getting growing attention from many local residents, councillors and local organisations. This page allows all to stay updated and get involved.

Further damage to Waterlily Playscape!

Over a number of recent weeks some young vandals have broken through the protective safety fencing at Waterlily Playscape and cut and tagged the rubber matting that had just just been laid under the new play equipment.

Now it’s happened again! On both Friday and Saturday nights they were at it again - scattering rocks and dirt and spraying shaving cream everywhere - causing further damage to this exciting, community-project. On Sunday morning a couple of the kids were up on top of the new shade-sails, refusing to get down despite the Police being called.

This on-going damage to the Playscape is delaying the much anticipated completion of works and the community’s enjoyment of the new Play Station and Flying Fox

Parents - please make sure it's not your kids who are breaking into the safety fencing both day and night.

If you are aware of any anti-social behaviour, particularly after dark, please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. You can choose to do this anonymously.

Thank you…

Are you interested in helping out with solving any of the root causes of teen problems and think the Playscape and park could be part of the solution? Consider joining our committee, we have an AGM 18 July, by nominating yourself. Contact the committee via the website. Of course there are other reasons to join the membership and committee and contribute as a volunteer and community member. We are also planning a celebration in August, come help us make a great event.

It’s foul behaviour no doubt about it and there is no excuse however there is absolutely nothing in ocean shores for the teenagers,not even decent public transport for them to get to places where there is something for them to do. Parents work n can’t always drive them around. I think it would be great to turn Water Lilly park into something like Suffolk Park has. Add some really cool skate ramps ,a large shelter for workshops for the teenagers in the holidays like inscribe does in Suffolk ,have outdoor cinema nights etc. Add market gardens and a mobile cafe and the place would come alive and give the teenagers a cool safe place to hang out n the dodgy ones will have to go somewhere else.

Get the local youth to have a meeting and ask them what they want.

I'm at the park right now and there are 4 kids about 10 yrs old in the fenced area throwing big rocks up onto the sails and basically tearing the place up.

We are all responsible for a our own actions, it is something I think there’s not enough of .

Surely the kids parents should be involved first if they are so young? And as much as I agree that there isn’t much to do it’s no excuse for vandalism. this was during the day I imagine?!

Such a shame! Any ideas when it might be open? I’m hoping to have my sons bday party there on Sunday 30th June 🙏🌟🙏

Waterlily Playscape can yall buy and set up a night vision camera somewhere where they cant see it.? Because its a small suburb of sorts so im sure someone would have to recognize the little twats

Lights and classical music playing. That’s what they did at a dodgie train station near where I used to live in Melbourne and it worked.

I would put cameras up. What is wrong with these kids? If caught they should be held accountable

Maybe it’s time for some clandestinely placed cameras. You can get relatively inexpensive CCTV cameras that link to an app on your phone and they can be watched in real time, then there are the ones that only turn on when there is movement. You don’t have to be a council to install CCTV and obviously this damage is costing money. Hopefully it’s insured in some way.

Talk to the local youth centres

That’s so not ok.

What is wrong with the world there sure is some sick people around 😡

Put the kids photos all over the shire so everyone knows who they are. Mongrels

Stupid boys
