The community of Oberon will benefit from $100,000 invested in an inclusive adventure play space under Round Five of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Deputy Premier and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the project will create a play space for all to enjoy.
“This is a big win for the Oberon community. The play space will fill a need in the community that has been lacking for some time,” Mr Toole said.
“Located at The Commons, this new project will create a precinct of fun for kids and adults in the local area.”
The Stronger Country Communities Fund had delivered more than 2000 grassroots projects, benefitting every Local Government Area in regional NSW.
“We all know how important it is for communities to have great places to come together to build social connections and boost their wellbeing through sport or community events.
Oberon Mayor Mark Kellam said the park will be a great addition to the community.
“This investment will expand the play space to include more equipment and more options for kids of all ages and abilities to have fun,” Mr Kellam said.
Round Five of the Stronger Country Communities Fund will support local community and sporting infrastructure projects, street beautification, public programs and events that display the best of local character and community spirit.
The Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure in the regions.
