Promotion: Van Styn: Playground Works Underway Shortly

During our Tuesday meeting I had the pleasure of moving a motion to get works on the playgrounds around Geraldton expedited.

With summer holidays fast approaching it is important that we get the playgrounds open as soon as possible.

The list of parks and their course of action for this financial year are as follows:

Repair play equipment and remove fencing at:

i.              Forrester Park
ii.             GRAMS Reserve
ii.            Webber Park (Waggrakine Hall)

Renew play equipment (including soft fall) and remove fencing at:

i.              Pages Beach
ii.             Rundle Park
iii.            Mahomets Beach
iv.           Geraldton Foreshore
v.            Glendinning Park
vi.           Maitland Park
vii.          Muir Park
viii.         Spalding Park 

Remove play equipment and fencing (not including edging and/or soft fall) at:

i.              Clematis Crescent Park
ii.             Iduna Park
iii.            Jenner Court Park
iv.           Levy Street Park
v.            Vincent Street
vi.           34 Alexander Street

Repair works will commence in the coming weeks and renewals will be completed prior to Christmas holidays, subject to supplier availability.

It is noted that some parks are having the equipment removed and not replaced this year. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss a park important to you, please feel free to contact me via email on or call me on 0417 910 005.

Together we can change how Council functions and get back to the basics like, playgrounds and parks. It is time for change.
