Jack Evans Boat Harbour in Tweed Heads is among 11 swim projects on the way for communities across the state, thanks to newly announced NSW Government funding.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said Tweed Shire Council had been selected to receive $748,000 in funding from the Places to Swim grant program, which supports councils and eligible agencies to improve public access to natural waterways.

“We know our communities value the wonderful rivers, lakes and pools across NSW and, thanks to this latest round of funding, we able to help ensure these natural wonders are safe and accessible for people of all ages,” Mr Provest said.

“The importance of having accessible places to swim and relax close to where you live can’t be overstated – it can help improve physical and mental wellbeing while providing much-needed space to cool down on hot days. 

Work on this latest pool of projects, including at Jack Evans Boat Harbour, will begin early next year with the aim of having all works completed and facilities open by mid-2024.
