4. My Community Project – Kids Outdoor Gym in Jack Chard Park, Tweed Heads

Community park now open.

The newly upgraded Jack Chard Park in Tweed Heads is now open and is well used and enjoyed by residents, visitors from neighbouring suburbs and St Joseph’s Primary School students and staff.

Thank you to the local communities in providing input into the playground upgrade at the park.

The new and more welcoming and accessible recreational space is a direct result of community input.

The provision of shade was very important to the community. Fourteen new trees were planted for future shade and another grant has been sourced to install a shade structure. The shade structure will be installed by July 2021.

The park upgrade was part of the NSW Government’s initiative to improve the wellbeing of local communities. The Council was voted by the Tweed community to receive the $107,000 grant, funded through the My Community Project, to provide a new Kids Outdoor Gym in Jack Chard Park. The shade structure has been funding through the NSW Community Building Partnership program for community infrastructure projects.

5. Upgrade Fingal Foreshore Park, Marine Parade, Fingal Head

Consultation has closed.

We compiled your ideas and visions for Fingal Foreshore Park. The project has progressed in terms of extensive community engagement and the development of a detailed concept plan. Due to the need for a cultural heritage assessment, the project timeline will be impacted, including the scheduled project completion date.

The delay to the project is unavoidable as it is imperative that Council exercises due diligence in the context of protecting Aboriginal cultural heritage and operations in accordance with statutory approvals and applicable legislation.

Information will be posted here when it becomes available.
