Redevelopment of Lunar Park moving ahead

The old will make way for the new at Lunar Park when the existing play equipment is removed so the new playground can be installed in April.

“This is just one part of the $100,000 redevelopment of Lunar Park for which we received $50,000 from Social Housing Community Improvement funding which was then matched by Council,” Dubbo Regional Council Manager Horticultural Services Ben Pilon said.

“The redevelopment also includes the creation of a community meeting place, replacement of the shade sail, installation of a new bubbler and solar lights, planting of trees and remarking the basketball court.”

“The new solar lights have already been installed and the rest of the work will be happening between now through April with expected redevelopment to be completed in May, the installation of the new play equipment will begin at the end of April.”

“Council consulted with Apollo House and St Mary’s and Buninyong primary schools on the redevelopment of Lunar Park so there has been a lot of community input into the design and we hope this will create a sense of ownership for the community.”

“We also let the community decide on the design of the playground by running an online and paper-based poll which received 861 votes.”

“The redevelopment of Lunar Park is in line with Council’s scheduled playground renewals which is aimed at providing better recreational spaces for families in the community.”
