The Cooyal Park Reserve will become more wheelchair-friendly thanks to a grant provided by the NSW Government.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders visited the village recently to announce the local Trust had been successful in their application for $9335 through the Crown Reserve Improvement Fund (CRIF).
The money will be used to construct a wheelchair-accessible path to the amenities block, upgrade water storage and install fencing around the reserve.
“This program is designed to improve and upgrade infrastructure at our local reserves, and it also ensures continued stimulation of local economies,” Mr Saunders said.
“I know this project will make a big difference to the Cooyal community. It is something that the local land managers have wanted for a long time and it is great that through this fund we’re able to ensure this work is being done.
“Our crown reserves and showgrounds are important places for our communities. They attract people and it is important that we work with communities like Cooyal to make sure they are as good as they can possibly be.”
