Joint release with:

Senator the Hon. Concetta Fierravanti-Wells

Senator for New South Wales

  • Construction complete on amenities building at Hurstville's Woodville Park
  • New facilities will support local community and park users
  • The Coalition Government fully funded the $116,068 project

The Hurstville community celebrated the opening of the new accessible public toilets in Woodville Park today after a $116,000 upgrade.

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester said the Coalition Government was improving regional communities by investing in local projects.

“The construction of a new accessible toilet block at the ever-popular Woodville Park will help when nature calls, particularly for families using the nearby children's playground, and for people needing to freshen up after using the public exercise equipment,” Mr Chester said.

“In addition, this project has created eight jobs during construction with an additional five permanent jobs, providing a welcome economic boost for the region.”

Minister for International Development and the Pacific, NSW Senator the Hon. Concetta Fierravanti-Wells today said the project was a direct investment in the Hurstville community, by addressing a key community need.

“The previous amenities building was run-down and unsafe, and did not adequately accommodate the 5,000 people who use the park annually,” Senator Fierravanti-Wells said.

“The new facilities will ensure that families can enjoy the park in greater comfort.”

The Australian Government invested $116,068 to fully fund this project, while members of the Georges River Rotary Club donated their time spending 40 hours painting the new facilities.
