Bangerang Park Redevelopment
Bangerang Park will undergo significant improvements to create a vibrant, welcoming space for the whole community. In addition to a unique playground, the project will include a new toilet block with disabled access and baby change facilities, landscaping and connecting paths.
The playground design will feature custom pieces of equipment and natural play elements, using locally sourced timber and stone to ensure the space compliments the natural environment.
The project seeks to beautify the Apex train station and incorporate this into the space as a key attraction. The repositioning of the playground will enable the mound to be used more effectively as a stage for outdoor events and celebrations.
More than 200 children from local schools and the Corowa Preschool provided feedback on the draft concept plans, which were placed on public exhibition during March/April 2018. Council has also been working closely with stakeholders and further design work has been required to ensure that community feedback has been carefully considered.
$500,963 has been allocated from the Major Projects Fund to support the Bangerang Park project, which has been a long standing priority for the community.
Council has also secured funding for the development of a new toilet block from Stronger Country Communities funding grant program.
Federation Council is pleased to be working in partnership with Rivalea Australia, who are contributing $50,000 towards the playground.
Following the consultation process of the draft concept plans, a number of changes are being made to the design to incorporate the feedback received.
Work has now commenced on this exciting project.
