Final funding has been secured and work is soon set to start on the Livvi’s Place playground in Taree’s Fotheringham Park.
Minister for Planning Anthony Roberts was in Taree on Tuesday, February 12, to announce a further $147,000 for the project, bringing the State Government’s contribution to close to $400,000.
MidCoast Council plans to start construction works of the new purpose-designed and accessible for all play space in coming weeks.
“Anyone who walks along Victoria St past the Fotheringham Park site will soon see construction underway,” said mayor David West.
“It’s a world-class playground and a testament to the vision of our staff, Touched by Olivia Foundation and our community, who partnered with MidCoast Council in this project.”
Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead said he was thrilled to secure the funding so work can begin.
“Livvi’s Place will be a special place where differences are accepted and everyone, of all abilities, is invited to play side by side, enjoying the benefits of belonging and being an active part of the community,” he said.
