Upgrades on the cards for Lake Moulamein
Published on 01 March 2023
Lake Moulamein Reserve will soon receive a facelift after Murray River Council secured $270,063 under Round 5 of the NSW’s Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
The funding will support the addition of accessible and inclusive infrastructure enhancements to the shared spaces within the lake surrounds.
Works will include the installation of new concrete paths that will better connect existing facilities and the lake, along with additional landscaping to provide shade and beautification.
The reserve will also be enhanced with a new BBQ area, drinking fountain, new seating around the lake, new fencing and new waste bin holders.
The installation of solar lighting will also activate the space at night and improve user safety.
Murray River Council mayor, Chris Bilkey said these improvements will enhance this important community recreation area.
“Community consultation undertaken during development of our Community Strategic Plan clearly indicated the community's desire for additional improvements to recreational facilities, walking tracks and parks and gardens in the town.”
“This funding will enable us to deliver some fantastic additions to this well-utilised space, which will certainly be welcome news to our residents,” he said.
Project works are expected to be undertaken towards the end of the year for readiness during the summer period.
The objective of the Stronger Country Communities Fund is to boost the wellbeing of communities in regional areas by providing new or upgraded social and sporting infrastructure or community programs that have strong local support.
