Works to revamp the Rylstone Caravan Park to give it a new lease of life is nearing completion.
The facility has been going through 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 and was pleased to learn that the project is now entering its final stages.
“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 is also a new amenity building which contains 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 a great addition to the region’s tourism.
“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, the park’s capacity increased with 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.”
To complete the upgrade, five additional two-bedroom cabins are under construction now.
