Parklets to activate Fitzmaurice Street

Eleven parklets have been installed along both sides of Fitzmaurice Street as part of a project to improve the amenity of the area.

Council was successful in securing a $271,000 grant from the NSW Government's 'Your High Street' program, which promotes permanent improvements to the amenity and functionality of streets for the benefit of local economies and public well-being.

The funding has already provided the installation of decorative lighting along Fitzmaurice Street and safety lighting along the levee bank to the Riverside precinct.

The public seating platforms provide additional spaces for the community to socialise and connect when using Fitzmaurice Street.
