Albury Riverside Precinct
The Albury Riverside Precinct is one of the four major projects we are delivering in partnership with the NSW Government under the Regional Growth Environment and Tourism Fund (RGETF). All projects improve our connection with the Murray River and will be ready for us to enjoy by mid 2021.
This project will transform a section of the river behind the Albury Swim Centre at Hovell Tree Park and will change the way both residents and visitors interact with the Murray River and its surrounding open space. The scope of works for the project includes the development of the following public infrastructure:
- A boardwalk along the river
- Jetty access and a mooring point
- Formalising access to the river in specific areas
- BBQs and picnic facilities
- Built shade structures
- Better car parking
- Improved links with the Wagirra Trail, CBD and Hovell Tree Park.
This project is currently in the design phase. A series of approvals will be required following the detailed design. Construction is expected to commence in early 2020.
