With the Liberal party announcing large-scale infrastructure upgrades, deputy Labor leader Michelle O'Byrne said her party was listening to the concerns of local communities.
After school, during the holidays and on weekends - the park is the place to be for kids young and old in Ravenswood.
The park lies surrounded by two busy roads - and the concern raised by parents is the risk that their children don't have a barrier to accessing the road.
Parent Emma Pennington said that the issue of safety barriers was discussed during initial consultation, and that more families would use the park if it felt safer for them.
"Most families in the community have multiple children, and to bring them to the park and keep an eye on all of them running around, it can be impossible," she said.
"We've asked for it, and we've been shut down. Their big solution at the moment is they've got more education for road safety, but for those five and under, they're not going to understand that.
"I know a lot of families that say they don't come here because it's not safe - it doesn't have to be a fence, which is around every other park, we're happy even with boulders or plants just to have a barrier."

Ms O'Byrne said if elected, Labor would commit $20,000 to ensure a barrier to the road was installed.
"We want to do is respond to things that aren't those big ticket items, but they're things that make a difference to the communities, and the parents who use this park have been worried for some time about how close their kids can sometimes get to the road," she said.
"Those of us who have had kids know that when one takes off, they take off fast. When the park originally was designed, it included some barriers to be a slow down to stop kids from getting onto a busy road, and for whatever reason as the plans evolved that didn't happen.
"The parents here have been campaigning for some time to get some safety measures in place. It's a small amount of money but will make a big difference."
