Bradley Park in Temora is among 13 new play-focused projects on the way for communities across the state, thanks to newly announced NSW Government funding.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said Temora Shire Council has been successful in receiving $345,000 from the Places to Play grant program, which supports councils and eligible agencies to create new outdoor spaces for those of all ages and abilities.
“We understand the value of public open spaces to the wellbeing of our communities and that’s why we’re investing in the accessible play facilities,” Ms Cooke said.
“I look forward to the transformation of Bradley Park, a minor local park becoming a district-level, nature-based, adventure and water playspace through the addition of natural features, bike paths, pump tracks, water play and accessible facilities.”
“With the current cost of living, this is a great initiative from Temora Shire Council, providing a space free for families to enjoy together as well as visitors to the area.”
Temora Shire Council Mayor, Cr Rick Firman said the enhancements for Bradley Park will improve the amenity of this growing residential neighbourhood and provide diverse nature-based, adventure and water play experiences that will meet the needs of a variety of ages, interests and abilities.
“The project provides a modern-style nature-based, adventure and water-based playspace, which is unique compared to conventional playgrounds provided throughout Temora Shire. The enhancements will offer families a challenging and interactive playspace, with experiences including climbing and balancing, as well as using natural surfaces of trees, rocks and stones for games, walking and riding,” Cr Firman said.
