The 2528 Project is part of the Child Friendly by Design initiative and is coordinated by Healthy Cities Illawarra. Crew Park in Warilla was identified as an area that community members wanted to see improved for themselves, their families and the broader community. To date we have brought together a working group who have been responsible for supporting the planning and delivery of a wide range of community activity. This has included children's afterschool and holiday open access play in the park sessions, volunteer training, community cooking initiatives, sports sessions for children and the securing of funds to improve the park environment. Children from the local schools all have the opportunity to contribute to the planning and designing of the physical improvements and the program of activities ensuring that the focus of the project remains with children and families in the area. The project has been funded by Communities for Children Shellharbour for a further year (June 2015) and needs community members with a passion for working with children and other community members to come forward and support the project to ensure its long term sustainability.
