Partnership to deliver new play space in Walker Crescent Park, Wellington
Mayor of the Dubbo Region Ben Shields is pleased to partner with Family and Community Services (FACS) to deliver a highly anticipated playground for the families of Walker Crescent, Wellington.
“I am very pleased to partner with FACS as part of the Social Housing Community Improvement Fund, to redevelop the Walker Crescent Park and improve the liveability and amenity of residents in this area,” said Clr Shields.
The park will receive a new playground, accessible path to the play space, solar lighting and an automatic irrigation system along with some grass restorations to improve the overall area.
The construction of the playground is scheduled to commence on Monday 6 May 2019 and the total construction period is expected to be completed in approximately 4 – 6 weeks, weather dependant.
Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders said the NSW Government is committed to improving the liveability of social housing communities through the Social Housing Community Improvement Fund.
“We’ve invested $20 million in projects which improve community infrastructure, enhance open spaces, improve safety, increase accessibility for older people or people with a disability, or facilitate integration between social housing and the broader community.
“I am very proud to support local projects like the Walker Crescent Play Space, that make communities like ours better places to live and work,” said Mr Saunders.
Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) staff have been working closely with FACS, Communities for Children and CatholicCare - Wilcannia Forbes, to ensure the needs of the residents will be adequately provided for within this project.
DRC would like to thank these agencies for their co-operation and collaborative approach that will deliver significant improvements to the community.
