Jarrah Park Playground
Families in Kelso will soon get to enjoy the new playground at Jarrah Park, Kelso, with the recent installation of play equipment.
Jarrah Park, located off Jarrah Court, has new swings, rockers, climbing structures and slides. The area surrounding the playground includes new seating, pathways, vehicle control fencing and tree planting.
The playground is a safe and vibrant space that demonstrates Council’s commitment to maintaining and improving playgrounds in the region.
The works cost approximately $50 000 and the playground equipment is expected to be open for use within the first week of the school holidays.
Cubis Park Sports Field
More than $100 000 will be spent on Cubis Park in Eglinton to improve the surface of the sports field.
The upgrades are a result of an ongoing program to develop and improve all sports fields and recreational spaces throughout the Bathurst region.
Seeding of the surface will commence in autumn next year and enhancements that were recently completed include:
• Scarification of the existing grass surface
• Top dressing of the entire irrigated field area
• A verti-drain application, which will aid in improved soil structure, reduce compaction and increase soil aeration
A second round of the field rejuvenation works is expected to be undertaken in September 2018 to complete the project.
The majority of the renovation activities will be scheduled to occur outside or in between sporting seasons to minimise impact on sports clubs that use Cubis Park.
