Park in Mungar set for $24,000 upgrade by council

PATHWAYS and bollards will be installed at A.E.Fielding Park in Mungar as part of a $24,000 project due to start on Monday, August 18.

The work includes bollards to restrict vehicles driving around the amenities block to stop further damage to existing paths and improve safety for children within the park.

The guttering on the amenities block will be replaced and awnings installed over the entrances to the toilet to stop rain making the floors slippery.

"The $24,000 project should take three weeks, weather permitting," sport, recreation, open space and events portfolio Councillor Darren Everard said.

Concrete pathways will also be installed to replace pavers to ensure the facility complies with disabled access guidelines.

The existing timber picnic tables will be replaced with aluminium tables and benches on concrete slabs.

"Some of the work will have an added benefit of reducing maintenance costs," divisional councillor James Hansen said.

"The park is very popular and this project will enhance its appeal."
