MEDIA RELEASE - Macksville Park Fun and Fitness Precinct Opening Celebration

A new skate park, lighting for the touch football field, a new community recreation room and fitness trails at Macksville Park will be officially opened by Nambucca Shire Council on Saturday 28 November and the community is invited to attend.

The project, worth $1.2 million, was made possible through two NSW State Government grants from ClubGRANTS and Department of Sport, and funding from Nambucca Shire Council.
Mayor Rhonda Hoban said “The jewel in the crown for the project is the new skate park.
“We are so lucky as a community to be able to provide this facility for our young people and give them an active pastime that teaches them so many skills as well as being fun.”
The celebration begins at 9.30am at the new skate park, Cooper Street, where speeches will be followed by special activities such as skate demonstrations, competitions and courses.
A short tour of the new facilities will follow, and the event will wind up at about 10.30am. Other activities will take place throughout the morning at the park, including a demonstration touch footy match. The Lions Club of Macksville will be on hand with food and drink available for purchase.
Mayor Hoban acknowledged the benefits of the lighting for the touch footy field, which will make it possible to have more teams and more matches for this popular sport which brings together people from all over the district and from many different age groups.
“As a Council we think it’s important to be able to provide a range of free or low cost activities for our residents and visitors, because exercise is so essential for good health,” she said.
The fitness trails that run through and alongside the park will be good for walkers and children on bicycles.
The community recreation room, which is attached to the existing Macksville Memorial Aquatic Centre, will be available for group exercise and other health activities.
The opening is on the same day as the Nambucca River Festival, making the whole of 28 November a fun-filled Macksville day.
