The Singleton community is being encouraged to visit local parks and playgrounds across the local government area in celebration of Parks Week.

Held each year, Parks Week honours the vital role parks play in creating liveable cities and vibrant communities. The event, which runs from 2 – 10 March 2024, focuses on how spending time in parks and open spaces positively influences our wellbeing.

Justin Fitzpatrick-Barr, Council’s Director Infrastructure and Planning Services said the annual celebration was the perfect occasion for residents to discover Singleton’s award-winning open spaces.

“Singleton is home to award-winning parks and playgrounds, three World Heritage-listed national parks and a diverse mix of lush green spaces that offer residents and visitors opportunities to relax or find adventure,” he said. 

“It’s no secret that we’re extremely passionate about our open space offering here in Singleton, and Council has significantly invested in these facilities over the past few years which has resulted in some truly incredible spaces for everyone to enjoy.

“We’re also extremely fortunate to have an incredibly dedicated Parks and Gardens Team who take a lot of pride in the work they do and in the appearance of our parks and open space areas.

“From the new basketball court at Alroy Oval, the award-winning Riverside and Rose Point Park All Abilities playgrounds in Singleton town centre, the playground and bike track in Townhead Park through to the new play spaces in Bulga, Broke, Jerrys Plains ¬≠and out at Lake St Clair— there’s no shortage of wonderful outdoor spaces to experience.

“Making time to visit these facilities is a great way for residents to get out and about, move, enjoy the simple things by connecting with family, friends, and the wider community, and thrive by appreciating local experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in Singleton.

“And in doing so, we’re all positively influencing our mental and physical health, thereby creating a liveable, happy, healthy and thriving community.”
