Another three playground upgrades have been completed recently as Council’s COVID-19 Community Support Package continues for the community.

Council will invest $130.6 million across the three stages of its COVID-19 Community Support Package to support residents and local businesses suffering the shock of COVID-19, with the following playgrounds completed last week:

  • McCrae Drive Playground Upgrade, Camden South - installation of new playground equipment and park furniture, replacement of softfall rubber and landscaping works;
  • Royal George Drive Playground Upgrade, Harrington Park - installation of new playground equipment and park furniture, installation of shade sail, replacement of soft-fall rubber and landscaping works; and
  • Yandel’ora Equipment Upgrade, Mount Annan - installation of new contemporary fitness equipment as well as park furniture and a bubbler, replacement of soft-fall rubber and landscaping works.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said it was important for Council projects to continue as they gave the community a massive boost moving forward.

“Council is committed to assisting the community as we work through these unprecedented times and the completion of these three projects is fantastic for all of our residents,” Cr Fedeli said.

“It’s estimated all three stages of our support package will boost Camden’s economy by up to $221.7 million and generate up to 507 new jobs.

“I am proud to see Council working hard in helping the community in a variety of ways in coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic as strong as possible and this is no exception.”

The completion of the three projects follows the installation of a wire rope fencing with two gates at Macquarie Grove Road Reserve, completed in June this year as part of the COVID-19 Community Support Package.
