Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley & Member for Kiama Gareth Ward were on hand to officially open the newly rejuvenated play space in the scenic Cambewarra Village.
The Cambewarra Residents and Ratepayers were the driving force for the project, succesfully receiving $45,000 from the NSW Community Parterships Grant towards the new playground.
Mr Ward praised the community spirit shown to get the project up and running:
Rarely does the Cambewarra community ask for much. I fought hard to ensure Council would match our contribution to provide this wonderful equipment for local families. It’s not a cost to Government, it’s an investment in the community.
Going on to say:
The park now includes Moduplay swings, climbing equipment, balancing logs, climbing net and wall. The much-anticipated playground construction is now open for members of the local community to enjoy.
The playground itself contains a custom “Premium” version of the Grand Gatehouse SkyTower, Bushwood Balance Trails, our *NEW* Whirly Rope, a Capital Double Swing and also has a smaller Capital Unit for the little ones not quite brave enough to tackle the SkyTower.
It was a fantastic day celebrating a much-needed play space, congratulations to the Shoalhaven City Council, the NSW Government, but most of all the Cambewarra Residents and Ratepayers who invested so much time and effort into getting this in the ground, it’s great to see that all of their hard work has finally paid off.
