Bathurst MP Paul Toole today announced the NSW Government would be helping fund a new parkland development in the suburb of Llanarth.
The $950,000 development includes a grant of $100,000 to Bathurst Regional Country from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF).
Mr Toole said the construction of Freeman Park in a new residential suburb of Bathurst would add to the quality of life for residents by providing green space for generations to come.
"The planned works are to include the full development of a vacant parcel of land dedicated for community purposes," he said.
"This will involve the construction and installation of playground equipment, paths, fitness stations, irrigated lawn areas, space for active and passive recreation, picnic shelters, BBQ and tree and shrub plantings.
"The Freeman Park development has been designed following an extensive community consultation process, with input into the chosen design elements provided by the general community and residents of the area."
Mr Toole said NSW Government’s funding was part of council’s overall masterplan to invest more than $950,000 into the Freeman Park site.
