Its 40th Birthday Splash was packed with free activities including inflatables, stalls from local community groups, jumping castles and sports clinics run by AFL NSW/ACT and Little Kickers Blacktown & Districts.

There was also Aqua fitness class and the latest innovation to hit Mount Druitt – Aqua Zumba class.
