Families across Yass will benefit from an upgrade of the Coronation Park Playground, thanks to a $130,000 contribution from the NSW Liberals Government.
Liberal for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the project, funded in partnership with Yass Valley Council, would install new play equipment to create a safe and engaging space for children to learn and play.
“The playground provides the community with a wide range of play opportunities accommodating children through all stages of physical development and of all abilities,” Ms Tuckerman said.
“It will also be a place where friends and families can meet, while providing entertainment for children.”
Yass Valley Council Mayor Rowena Abbey welcomed the funding.
“On behalf of Council and the community I would like to thank the NSW Government for this investment in our region,” Cr Abbey said.
Minister for Racing Paul Toole said the grant was funded through the ClubGrants Category 3 Infrastructure Grants program.
“More than $50 million in funding is being provided during this current term of government for projects across sport and recreation, emergency preparedness, and arts and culture,” Mr Toole said.
These grants are funded by a contribution from the state’s registered clubs to reinvest profits from gaming machines back into community projects. More information may be found via this link: https://www.responsiblegambling.nsw.gov.au/infrastructure-grants/infrastructure-grants
