TAMWORTH REGIONAL PLAYGROUND PROGRESSES
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson is impressed with the progress of the Tamworth Regional Playground at Bicentennial Park.
Mr Anderson said once completed, the playground will provide the Tamworth community and the wider region with a great facility for both children and adults to enjoy.
“Work on the project is progressing well, and anyone driving past will have noticed a lot of activity in the area”, Mr Anderson said.
“There has been a lot of community involvement in this project which I love to see. Local businesses and local people have already given a lot of time and resources to the project,”
“This project was successful in securing $1.1m in State Government funding which was matched by Tamworth Regional Council, and will join Scully Park Regional Sporting Precinct as a remarkable asset for the Tamworth region.
The playground will feature over 20 different pieces of equipment for all ages and abilities as well as the star attraction - a 9.1m high skywalk which will be the first of its kind installed in regional NSW.
Project Manager Grant Reeckmann said the project’s diversity and community involvement is what makes it a stand out.
“Engagement from contractors that have donated time and services has helped to keep projects costs down so we can add more to it,” Mr Reeckmann said.
“It has a lot of diversity in it in terms of equipment, as well as the introduction of a café and restaurant, outdoor gym, carpark and incorporation of smart technology” Mr Reeckmann concluded.
The project is on schedule to be completed by the end of October, and the official opening is expected to be sometime in early December.
