Funding ramps up Edward River skatepark plan

Edward River Council has secured $500,000 from the NSW Government to construct a new skate park in the region.

Council was successful in applying for the funding from the Places to Play program, under the NSW Government’s Open Spaces Program.

Mayor, Peta Betts thanked the state’s former Minister for Planning and Minister for Homes, Anthony Roberts for releasing the funding “to our local community which supports our strategic objective to build strong, confident and connected communities and water-based play activity programs”.

The Department of Planning and Environment engaged a professional skate park designer who worked closely with Council, local community groups, Yarkuwa and school students during 2022, to develop the concept design for the new Edward River Skate Park.

The Park will be located at the current site in Edwardes Street, and construction work is anticipated to start towards the end of 2023.
