Narrandera Council Secures Playground Funding
The Narrandera Shire Council has been awarded $75,000 as part of the final round
of the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play program.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the program supports councils to build
new or upgrade existing playspaces to improve inclusivity across NSW.
“This grant is a win for the community. It means that Narrandera will have better public facilities for everyone to enjoy, regardless of age, ability or cultural background,” Ms Cooke said.
The funds will be put towards upgrading the Narrandera Adventure Playground to
make the space more inclusive.
This funding comes on the back of the completion of the playground at the Lake Talbot Tourist Park. This playground was completed via funding from the Narrandera Council and the State government as part of the ‘Playground on the Murrumbidgee’ Project.
The Everyone Can Play program was established in 2018 as part of the $290 million
Open Spaces and Greener Sydney package. It supports the Government’s priority of
increasing access to quality, walkable, green and open public space.
