Improvements to three playgrounds and three sporting facilities were among 10 recently completed community-inspired projects in our city, funded by the state government.

New toilets and barbecues were installed at both Illyarrie Reserve and Jubilee Reserve playgrounds, with Jubilee Reserve also receiving additional playground equipment.

A water play feature for Civic Park playground, plus construction of more tennis/netball courts at Banksia Park, and change rooms and toilet facilities at Modbury Sporting Club were other items completed under the $1.2 million state funding package.

“It’s wonderful to see these projects being enjoyed by community members, including grassroots sporting clubs and local families,” said Mayor Kevin Knight.

All projects were managed by the City of Tea Tree Gully.
