School playground gates thrown open for summer holiday fun.

Schools are an important part of every community and often occupy prime open space. Instead of locking the gate this summer, the trial program will share this public space to allow people to exercise and play at their some of their local schools over the summer holiday break,

The education minister Rob Stokes is trialling the 'Come Play Summer' program during the holidays with selected schools opening up their playgrounds, ovals and sports courts for the enjoyment of their communities.

In the Inner West we will have Haberfield Public School in Denman Ave Haberfied and Marrickville High School in Northcote Street Marrickville opening their gates from 8am to 6pm until late January 2018.
