Gunnedah's new inclusive playground is in the final stages and two local mums are thrilled.
Julie Frend and Rebecca Dridan got a first-hand look at the site on Tuesday afternoon, alongside councillors, working group members and council staff.
Both women have sons with disabilities and believe the inclusive playground at Wolseley Park is a major leap forward for the town.
"To include absolutely everyone is a milestone. It's a great initiative by the council for the town," Mrs Frend said.
Mrs Frend is the director of Gunnedah Baptist Community Preschool and said staff were looking forward to taking the kids there for excursions.
Ms Dridan is on the playground working committee and said she and Seamus were planning on being among the first in the playground on opening day.
"We'd seen other playgrounds like this around the region and were very jealous that we didn't have one," she said.
"It's exciting that so many elements are accessible for a range of abilities ... it will also be a great meeting place," Ms Dridan said.
"It's a boon for our community."
Ms Dridan said there was also "potential for expansion" in the future.
All the main elements of the playground including the major equipment and pathways are already installed.
Large areas of soft fall are setting and work on the sandpit is in progress.
A 3.6m safety fence is also being installed around the outside edge of the oval to protect children in the playground from sporting activities.
Landscaping is an ongoing activity and turf will also be laid next to the barbecue area, which is wheelchair-accessible.
