Works commenced in July on the South Albury Active Space  at Waites Park South Albury. The project was one of the primary actions from the Outdoor Basketball Court Strategy 2017-2021 which was endorsed by Council in April 2017. The area has a wide range of activities which is expected to attract community members of all ages. The project involved the following:

  • Upgrade of beach volleyball courts, pathways and perimeter fencing
  • Outdoor basketball court
  • Skate/scooter elements targeting beginners
  • “Hit Up” wall
  • Fitness zone
  • Shelter, fencing pathways and seating
  • Water bottle filling station/drinking fountain

The project is expected to take 12 – 16 weeks to complete. During the period, there may be minor disruptions to traffic while vehicles are entering and exiting the site. In addition, car parking along the Hovell Street side of the facility will be limited and unavailable during some periods.

The NSW Government through the Stronger Country Communities Fund - Round 2 is contributing $349,750 to the project.
