There are now new BBQ and picnic shelter facilities at Garrison Point thanks to funding from Jason Clare and City of Canterbury Bankstown.
Garrison Point, which is located within the Mirambeena Regional Park off Henry Lawson Drive in Georges Hall, is an extremely popular recreational area for the local community, with access to picnic facilities, shade shelters, barbeques, playground equipment, disabled access and public toilets.
“Nothing beats a barbie on a summer’s day and this will make the park more accessible for people with a disability,” Mr Clare said.
Mayor Khal Asfour said this is a great example of federal and local governments working together to deliver real benefits to the community.
“We remain committed to making sure everyone can use and enjoy our parks and facilities,” he said.
“Garrison Point Reserve is one of CBCity’s most popular parks, so this upgrade will be enjoyed by thousands of people.”
The Stronger Communities Programme provides grants, between $5,000 and $20,000, to not-for-profit organisations for small capital works projects that improve our local community.
In Round 4 the Blaxland Consultation Committee approved 17 projects, with $150,000 worth of grants contributed to works.
Over the past four years, the Blaxland Consultation Committee has approved a total of 54 projects, with $588,925 worth of grants being contributed to projects of local community groups.
