TAMWORTH REGIONAL PLAYGROUND OPEN FOR BUSINESS
Tamworth Bicentennial Park was alive with cheer and laughter yesterday as Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson officially opened the multi-million dollar Tamworth Regional Playground on behalf of the Deputy Premier Troy Grant with Mayor Col Murray.
Mr Anderson said the state-of-the-art facility has helped bring Kable Avenue to life and is a credit to all who worked on the project.
“We can be proud as a community that we have an incredible facility that will rival playgrounds from across the state.
“Many hours of hard work has been put in by businesses, trades people, volunteers and Tamworth Regional Council to get this facility at the standard that it is today.”
The playground was partly funded by the NSW Government’s Club Grants Programme with $1.1million going towards the project, an amount matched by Tamworth Regional Council.
“Thank you to the Deputy Premier and the Club Grants team for helping make a local dream a reality.
“Tamworth can now boast one of the best family facilities in NSW. Already people from outside of our city are talking about the new playground which is a welcome addition to the incredible facilities we have across our region.”
As well as the children’s play facilities the precinct also has an on-site café/restaurant which is a joint council and private enterprise venture.
The playground forms part of the Tamworth Region’s first “smart” precincts using the latest technology for lighting, parking, CCTV and free wireless internet service during daylight hours.
“Congratulations to all involved the development of this project. I urge families to head down and enjoy the new public facilities.” Mr Anderson concluded.
