Riverside redevelopment completed

Wagga Wagga's eagerly awaited Riverside Redevelopment is complete.

The redevelopment will turn the Wagga beach and Murrumbidgee River precinct into an attraction for residents and visitors to the region, and an ideal venue for festivals, markets and musical performances.

Works included upgraded fencing, lighting, walk and cycle paths, an events stage, parking, new accessible amenities, and an al-abilities playground inspired by the city's paddle-steamer past and the old Wagga Water Whizz.

The $9.93 million project was funded through a $5 million grant from the NSW Government's Regional Growth - Environment and Tourism Fund, $3.08 million from the Commonwealth Government's Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Fund and $1.85 million from Wagga Wagga City Council.
