Mayor Cr Margaret O’Rourke said a growing community needed high quality recreation facilities.

“Playgrounds are also very important to our community and we are fortunate to have a large number and variety of playgrounds across our neighbourhoods

“This year’s investment in maintaining and improving our recreational infrastructure will ensure residents are able to be outside and active, either playing organised sport or enjoying our parks and playgrounds.”
