New amenities to be built at Oatley Memorial Gardens

19/06/2018

Construction is set to commence on a new amenities building in Oatley Memorial Gardens, Oatley, which will provide greater accessibility to users of the playground and the local area.

The new building, which will be constructed by Jag Building and Bricklaying, will be funded by $250,000 through the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund.

The allocation of funding to the project will see the existing toilet facilities demolished to make way for a new ambulant accessible amenities building, retaining wall and surrounding garden beds.

The new structure will feature new male and female toilets with ambulant access as well as a unisex accessible toilet with a baby change table.

Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene said the upgrades to the amenities at Oatley Memorial Gardens reflected Council’s effort to improve the accessibility of infrastructure and services in the Georges River area.

“The construction of new ambulant accessible amenities at Oatley Memorial Park is one of several amenities upgrades in the Georges River area, made possible through the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund,” said Councillor Greene

“Oatley Memorial Gardens will join Peakhurst Park, Riverwood Park, Renown Park and Carss Bush Park in receiving important amenities upgrades.”

“These upgrades will ensure our great public spaces are accessible for all members of the community, and encourage greater use of these parks and playing fields by families and community groups.”

During the construction, Georges River Council will provide temporary amenities for the public.
