The NSW Government is funding transformative open space projects across the Tweed region, with a new, inclusive playspace opening in time for Christmas, and other recreation and sporting upgrades on the way in the new year.

Minister for Planning and Minister for Homes Anthony Roberts said the new facility ‘Goorimahbah — Place of Stories Inclusive Park and Playspace’, focuses on innovative and inclusive play experiences, including flying foxes for adventure, collaboration with local indigenous artists, and large picnic areas for friends and family to enjoy.

“This new space, located at Jack Evans Boat Harbour, will be a superb asset for the community, having been designed to cater for people of all abilities, including those with mobility, sensory, sight and hearing challenges,” Mr Roberts said.

“Construction is set to be completed in December, just in time for families to get out and enjoy over the Christmas holidays.”

Tweed Shire Council received $300,000 funding for the upgrade, as part of the NSW Government’s Everybody Can Play program – a $20 million initiative to deliver more accessible and inclusive playspaces.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said the Government is also funding a series of other infrastructure and open space projects in the Tweed.

“We are investing $1.4 million to develop a state-of-the-art Youth & Family Precinct, upgrades to Piggabeen Sporting Complex, and the revitalisation of Ray Pascoe District Park through our Regional Housing Fund,” Mr Provest said.

“Delivering new infrastructure and open space projects that directly support the delivery of new housing supply is so important, to ensure residents have greater access to well-designed, inclusive open spaces, close to where they live.

“We’re eager to hear what else the Tweed community wants and needs and encourage  locals to take part in our recently launched NSW Regional Outdoor Survey.”
