Work will start on the new playground at the popular Apex Park in Numurkah next week.
Mayor Libro Mustica said while these works were progressing the area would be closed from Monday 19 April for a period of 6-8 weeks.
“This will allow for the installation and relocation of playground equipment and the completion of all landscaping works surrounding the playground area,” Cr Mustica said.
“The multi-play unit includes two slides, a climbing wall and climbing net, wire net tunnel, fireman’s pole, and a vertical stepper.
“There will also be swings, an explorer’s hut, inground trampoline, sandpit, rotofun seat, and look out for the very colourful Frankie the Fish spring rockers.”
Cr Mustica said the toilet block next to the playground is also undergoing an upgrade and will be closed during this time.
“The closest public toilets are at the Numurkah Showgrounds or the Sports Centre Netball Complex and signage at Apex Park will be erected to direct the public to those alternate sites.
“In addition, the barbecue rotunda will be closed intermittently during this period as it is also getting a facelift.
“We thank the public for their patience during these works – the result will be a fantastic asset for the whole community.”
