Macquarie Lions Park Dubbo, Rejuvenation Project

Dubbo Regional Council staff will be undertaking rejuvenation works at Macquarie Lions Park in Dubbo in order to improve the presentation of the popular space.

As part of the work staff and contractors will be laying 1500 square meters of turf to improve the appearance of the area.

Manager of Recreation and Open Space Ian McAlister said the space is heavily used by community groups and events across the year which has contributed to wear and tear on the grass surface. This wear and tear has been exacerbated by ongoing irrigation wiring problems that are also scheduled to be addressed in the near future.

“This prominent park sees a high amount of foot traffic throughout the year via events and the market activities which is fantastic but in order to maintain an aesthetically pleasing open space we need to program some rejuvenation works,” said McAlister

The project will be funded from Council’s restricted assets budget which is generated by the funds paid by the events that use the facility.

“Macquarie Lions Park is a much loved open space in our community and these improvements will only add to its presentation and aesthetics for years to come,” said Mr McAlister.

In order for the project to take place the Monthly Farmers Markets will be moved to Ollie Robbins Oval for the April 6th 2019 event.

The rejuvenation project will commence on Friday March 29, with works expected to be completed within four (4) weeks.
