Clifton Park footpath construction begins

Construction has commenced on the Community Connections Pathway at Clifton Park, Crookwell.

The construction of a shared concrete path around the perimeter of the park, was initiated by the Crookwell Neighbourhood Centre and funded under the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 1.

The work is being undertaken by Upper Lachlan Shire Council’s Works and Operations Department.

The $113,000 project will link the park’s outdoor gymnasium, children’s playground, skate park, cricket nets and planned toilet block.

The project also includes the construction of a wheelchair accessible sheltered BBQ on a cement pad.

Mayor Brian McCormack OAM said the footpath will allow for greater accessibility and walkability, especially for young families with prams and scooters, and the installation of the BBQ will encourage greater use of Clifton Park.

“This is a wonderful project that will assist in encouraging the community to get outdoors, get active and engage in healthy lifestyles,” Cr McCormack said.

“On behalf of Council and the community I would like to thank the NSW Government for this investment in our Shire and congratulate the Crookwell Neighbourhood Centre on their successful funding application.”
