The member for Coffs Harbour, Gurmesh Singh, said a $108,900 State Government grant will deliver big improvements to the popular Woolgoolga Lakeside Reserve picnic area.
Mr Singh said the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants Program (Clubgrants Category 3) has allocated these funds to the Woolgoolga Lake Working Group for the community’s exciting project.
“I congratulate the dedicated and passionate members of the Woolgoolga Lake Working Group on their successful application and I look forward to seeing the transformation of this picturesque place,” Mr Singh said.
“The redevelopment of the Woolgoolga Lakeside Reserve picnic area will include new paths, picnic area settings, a renovated barbecue area, shelters, beach shower, bottle refill and bike racks.
“It will connect the play space to the water, use the natural shade of the park and provide a much-needed safe, inviting and accessible area.”
Mr Singh said the Woolgoolga Lake Working Group is a strident advocate for the conservation of our natural environment with a long-term vision to revive Woolgoolga Lake.
“I applaud the working group members for the many hours they spend enhancing the local area for all to enjoy, and for their contributions to making our community an even better place to live,” he said.
The revamp of the Woolgoolga Lakeside Reserve picnic area exemplifies the importance of community infrastructure and helping local organisations to continue to serve our community.
