Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders believes residents of Wellington will make wonderful use of the upgraded Cameron Park, which was officially opened on Friday.
More than $470,000 of NSW Government funding was provided to Dubbo Regional Council to complete the project, including $280,000 from the Stronger Communities Fund as a result of the merger of the former Dubbo and Wellington councils.
Mr Saunders said the park is an area Wellington residents can be proud of.
“While there is new play equipment for the younger members of the community, there is also a terrific wedgetail eagle statue created by local sculptor Brett Garling that pays homage to the Binjang clan of Wellington,” he said.
“A substantial amount of the funding came from the Stronger Communities Fund that has been used on projects to benefit both Dubbo and Wellington through the merger process.
“The remainder of the funding came from the Everyone Can Play fund, and the premise of that was to provide accessible areas that cater for everyone.
“It’s great to see the new Cameron Park providing something for the entire community.”
