Shoalhaven’s upgraded Howell Faulks Park opens with new inclusive picnic and play area
Shoalhaven City Council has opened the upgraded Howell Faulks Park in Cambewarra which includes a shelter consisting of a covered seating area and an accessible table next to the existing barbecue facilities along with three new playground items added to provide inclusive play: an inclusive carousel, nest swing, and accessible buggy rocker.
The Howell Faulks Park upgrade was supported by a grant from the NSW State Government of $50,000. Council co-contributed $25,000 towards the project from the Parks Enhancement Program.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said the new equipment will better meet the needs of the community and will beautify the recreational area for local families, children and visitors of all abilities to enjoy.
Mayor Findley advised “It is great to see inclusivity being a key element in the design for recreational upgrades ensuring families of all abilities have the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors.”
