Detailed design for the development is being finalised and contractors, Huon, have begun stormwater works at the site. Once complete, bulk earthworks with be carried out in preparation for construction to commence in the coming months.
A container for the gardeners’ storage and office, along with a food and beverage van have been purchased, while a substantial order has been placed for landscaping elements.
Sub-contractor Moduplay has started fabricating and testing the playground equipment at its factory. It will be transported to Wagga Wagga in small sections and assemble on site.
The Moduplay design is an all-abilities adventure play space inspired by some of the city’s history, as well as Wiradjuri themes. It was a clear winner with community members in Council’s playground poll conducted earlier this year.
A new amenities block will be constructed, which will include an accredited adult-accessible lay down change facility.
Another design feature of the precinct will be the main stage, which will cater for a wide range of events.
The project is expected to be completed by mid-April 2022, weather permitting.
