The NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play grants program is set to deliver a bigger and better playground in the heart of Rylstone.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole caught up with Mid-Western Shire Council’s Peter Shelley to make the important funding announcement.
“The grant of $146,000 will give the local playground next to Rylstone Showground a new lease of life,” Mr Toole said.
“This program supports councils to build new or upgrade existing playspaces, to improve inclusivity across NSW.
“This grant is a win for our local community. It means that Rylstone will have better public facilities for everyone to enjoy, regardless of age, ability or cultural background.”
Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the fourth and final round of the program will support 33 projects in 29 local government areas throughout NSW.
“All communities should have access to great public spaces and the Everyone Can Play program is providing people of all ages and abilities with places to come together and have fun,” Mr Stokes said.
