Rosalie Park's newly refurbished facilities were officially reopened yesterday with a special event held at the park's main pavilion. Mayor Heather Henderson celebrated the refurbishment with a plaque unveiling and accompanying guests on a tour of the new facilities.
The upgrades, which took place between January and July this year, were designed to improve the functionality of the facilities for park users. They included the addition of new storage facilities for the sporting clubs, new kitchen amenities, upgrades to toilet, change room and meeting facilities and renovations of the two pavilions, including a new roof for the west pavilion.
The refurbishments were completed at a cost of $1,053,000, and were part of the ten year capital expenditure program approved by council in 2006, which included provisions for Rosalie Park facility improvements.
