Livvi's Place

Here is a great link (in the title) for anyone who lives or is likely to travel near Five Dock in the wonderful inner west suburbs of Sydney. We took the twins today (it only opened last week). I felt quite teary seeing so many families - and at least 3 others - who had children with special needs - enjoying the first all abilities playground in Australia. The equipment is great - and I felt that the other families (those with 'regular' kids only) were also very happy and comfortable to mingle with the special needs kids. A lovely inclusive environment in my local community. YAY!! Thanks so much to the Touched by Olivia Foundation. Next time I will take my camera so you can see how much fun the brats and their Mum and Dad had on the equipment.

Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. We've been kept quite busy since the launch (and your blog) so hope you can forgive the very belated response!

We are all so happy to hear that you enjoyed the playground and hope you've made it back since... there's a whole host of Livvi's Place's earmarked for sites across Australia.
