I was fortunate to join Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Mayor Darcy Byrne, members of Lewis Herman's family and many locals at the opening of the newly upgraded Lewis Herman Reserve in Ashfield on 4 December 2023. The upgrade has been designed specifically as a new 'multi-generational' park, with facilities that support all ages and to reflect the diverse background of the community. Located near Ashfield Baptist Homes and Cardinal Freeman Retirement Village, the park includes many accessibility features; a sensory garden, accessible tables and benches and pathways into a familiar environment for visitors. It is the Inner West's first dementia friendly park. The space also provides a modern and fun space for children to play. Congratulations to the many community members who contributed to the design of the upgrade and to the Inner West Council for leading a highly successful community consultation process and delivering such a great park for our community. It is a wonderful testament to the memory of Lewis Herman, Ashfield's longest serving Mayor. I look forward to enjoying this vibrant new space where connections can flourish, and lasting memories will be created.
