Red Gum Park Play Space upgrade

This project will improve the park play area with new play equipment with shade. Stage two includes the construction of an outdoor basketball area.

The Construction of stage 2 works are now complete and the site is open for use. 

Red Gum Park is located in Easternview Estate in East Albury. The local residents were successful through the NSW Governments My Community Grant program in acquiring funding for shade in the park. The play elements were due to be replaced so Council allocated an additional $50,000 to improve the area. The project scope includes:

  • Replace the play equipment with a new combination play unit, double swing and spin play
  • Shade sails over the new combination play unit

Funding through the  Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program for stage two works. This involves:

  • Installation of a new half court basketball court
  • Concrete linking footpaths
  • Additional seating; and
  • Drinking fountain
