Progress is being made on the construction of the Rylstone Caravan Park upgrade. The facility is set to undergo a major transformation with help from a NSW Government Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF) grant of $154,525.
Bathurst MP Paul Toole visited the site recently and said the upgrades would give the caravan park a new lease of life.
“The upgrade includes the extension of the park’s grounds, extension of the existing road through the venue and addition of camping and recreational vehicle parking sites with new services,” he said.
“There are also plans for the demolition of the existing amenities building following the construction of a new amenities building which will contain toilets, showers, parent room, store room, laundry, camp kitchen and an office with kitchenette.”
Mr Toole said the Rylstone Caravan Park is just a short walk from the main street and is a great location to base yourself for visits to many of the natural beauties in the area such as Fern Tree Gully, Glen Davis, Dunns Swamp, The Capertee Valley the Bylong Valley.
Mid-Western Mayor Des Kennedy said the upgrades are progressing.
“The new amenities building will reinvigorate the caravan park and what we can offer visitors to our beautiful region, with all new toilets, showers and camp kitchen,” Cr Kennedy said.
“As part of the upgrade we’ll be increasing the park’s capacity to an addition 20 sites, along with powered recreational vehicle parking sites.
“I’d like to thank the NSW Government for its investment in this project.”
