Bombala Playground ready for action

Ready, set, fly. The new Bombala Playground has opened to the public and local families are already enjoying the enhanced recreational space.

Home to a new flying fox (the Double Sky Rider), the Bombala Playground is the latest project delivered through the Stronger Communities Fund Major Projects Program.

Within the new playground, the existing all abilities swing set has been retained and now includes rubber softfall underneath.

Across the weekend, the playground was home to many smiling faces with children swinging, sliding and spinning on the new equipment.

Snowy Monaro Regional Council Mayor, John Rooney, said it is exciting to see families taking advantage of the new Bombala Playground.

"The new playground is a fantastic design and children of all abilities will enjoy it,” Mayor Rooney said.

“The playground is the result of consultation with the community, in particular, local children.

"Council is pleased to have delivered this playground for the enjoyment of Bombala families, and we anticipate it will attract many tourists as well.

"The new flying fox looks very impressive, as do the other pieces of equipment.

This is a wonderful community space that locals will love for many years to come.

The Bombala Playground is one of ten playgrounds to be built and upgraded throughout the Snowy Monaro region.

An official event will be held in the coming weeks with the community to be invited to celebrate the playground's opening.

"I would like to thank the NSW Government and Member for Monaro John Barilaro for providing us with the opportunity to deliver projects, like the Bombala Playground, through the Stronger Communities Fund," Mayor Rooney said.
