Adventure Playground comments welcomed.

The concept plans for Gundagai’s large scale adventure playground are now on public display at the Gundagai Library, Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council administration office and CGRC website. The preferred site in Carberry Park for the $1 million playground is expected to provide locals and tourists with picnic areas, play zones catering for toddlers, juniors and senior aged children.

Council will receive written submissions from interested community members on the proposal up until Friday 9th March.

The adventure park will promote a family friendly environmentally safe space, encourage strong community spirit and opportunities for all to engage in healthy and active lifestyle choices. It will also encourage tourists and visitors to stay a little longer in Gundagai, and spend time shopping and eating in Gundagai’s CBD, Sheridan Street.

The proposed plans also include landscaping, a bandstand, fitness zones and increased parking spaces. Pleasant pedestrian zones, shelter structures and improvements to the amenities block also make up the concept of how the area will look and feel.
