Ruse residents will soon be able to enjoy a modern upgrade to the play space at Cook Reserve.
Mayor George Brticevic said the new playground would be a substantial improvement for Cook Reserve.
“This new playground is going to be a magnificent place for parents, grandparents and carers to bring the kids down during an afternoon or weekend and enjoy a picnic,” Cr Brticevic said.
“Providing kids with access to somewhere where they can play in a modern and safe environment is a key part of our State of Play strategy which guides the development of new parks across our city,” he said.
“Cook Reserve will complement a number of upgraded or new parks recently opened or set to be completed in the coming months.”
Works have now started to build the new play space which will include:
- Updated play equipment
- Inclusive swing set
- Picnic seats and shelters
- New barbeque facility
- Sandstone block seats
- Shade sails
- Exercise equipment
- Tree plantings
- Accessible toilet facility.
The park was designed following consultation with the Ruse community and incorporated feedback from residents.
The revamped park is expected to open in April.
