New park creates ‘life by the river’

By Corowa Free Press

Federation Council has released new design concepts for the $900,000 Bangerang Park Playground located in Corowa which is set to be a significant development for young families in the Federation Council area. 

The concept designs have been informed by consultation with stakeholders and funding partners to show and discuss the designs and gather feedback.  

Federation Council Mayor, Cr Patrick Bourke said Council is really excited to be able to deliver this project for the community and in particular young families. 

“The designs are inspired by the theme ‘Life by the River’ and colors of the River Redgum Environment and the design incorporates all abilities access and play for all ages.” 

“This family friendly area will contain a free-standing all abilities play system that includes a twin tower and sky walk, sand and water play, balance and agility, spin dish, swings, sculptural pieces as well as musical items. The playground will be set within new plantings of riparian foliage that compliments the senses.” 

The total project value includes the purchase and installation of playground equipment, storm water and electrical upgrades, paths, BBQ’s, picnic settings, landscaping, stage relocation and new public toilet construction.  

“With Bangerang Park being located in the town centre, this much awaiting transformation will enhance the space for the community and visitors to enjoy into the future,” he said. 

Council is inviting the broader community to review and provide their feedback in relation to the playground design concepts. The concept design is currently on display at the Corowa Civic Centre, 100 Edward Street, Corowa during opening hours or the key elements can be downloaded from Council’s 

website www.federationcouncil.nsw.gov.au. Feedback closes Wednesday 24 July 2019. 

Council will provide regular updates to the community in relation to the implementation progress of this exciting project as it happens.
