Cootamundra’s Albert Park is currently undergoing a transformation with the installation of an all-inclusive playground. Preliminary ground works have commenced on the area. A major component of the play space will be nature play, with sand, water, rolling mounds, rocks and sensory items including the planting of grasses and other species of plants.
Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) has welcomed the donation of large rocks from Mawson’s/ Milbrae Quarries. The rocks were delivered to site this week and will be placed into position as the work proceeds.
Mawson’s/Milbrae Quarries made the donation of the rocks as they believe the playspace is a great opportunity for the broader community to come together and use the area, regardless of age, ability, and capability.
CGRC mayor Cr Abb McAlister welcomed the donation and thanked the company for their contribution.
“I’d like to sincerely thank the people from Mawson’s/Milbrae Quarries for getting on board with this project. The donation of these huge rocks will enhance the area and the experience people will have when visiting Albert Park. The company has made a significant gift to the community,” Cr McAlister said.
“The donation of the rocks is huge, but also the time and equipment used by Mawson’s/Milbrae Quarries in loading the rocks and assisting with bringing them to site is substantial,” Cr McAlister added.
The Mawson’s/Milbrae Quarry is located in Cootamundra and makes up part of E.B. Mawson & Sons Pty Ltd Trading as Milbrae Concrete, Quarries & Mining Services. A privately owned company providing specialist services in the quarrying and mining industry and concrete manufacture.
