BOWRAVILLE CONNECTIONS ROUND 1 STRONGER COUNTRY COMMUNITIES PROJECT

BOWRAVILLE CONNECTIONS ROUND 1 STRONGER COUNTRY COMMUNITIES PROJECT: AMENITIES UPGRADE, CONNECTING PATHWAYS AND BBQ AREAS

The Bowraville Connections Concept Plan was adopted by Council in October 2016, and several elements of this design have now come to fruition with the assistance of considerable grant funding, and incredible “on the ground work” by Council staff and employed contractors.

On Friday, 30 October 2020, the final stage of the NSW Government funded Round 1 Stronger Country Communities Project for the Upgrade of Amenities, BBQ areas and connecting pathways in the precinct was realised, and the toilets were open to the public.

This project capped off the works commenced in 2018, and brings together all the other completed projects at the Hennessey Tape Oval Recreational Precinct in Bowraville including an upgrade of the skate park, installation of a BMX track, conversion of 2 tennis courts to Basketball/Netball courts, a wonderful inclusive children’s playground, connecting pathways and now accessible amenities – with doors painted in Bowraville Tiger orange.

All the projects have been developed with input from the community, and the previously developed Bowraville Connections Concept Plan, and grant funding from the NSW Government under several programs including Stronger Country Communities Fund – Rounds 1 and 2, Everyone Can Play Program, and the Social Housing Community Improvement Fund.

Council has received many letters of support and thanks, and we do appreciate all feedback from the community.
