Colombo Park in Bemboka is a well used community space servicing a number of sports clubs as well as general community use. The amenities are ageing and in need of an upgrade.
With funding from the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, the Colombo Park amenities upgrade project will renew the ageing public amenities to include accessible compliant facilities, renew the existing parkland shelters and picnic area, and construct accessible pathway links.
Construction is planned to commence in March 2022.
Key stakeholder groups have been engaged throughout the project, including the Bemboka Lions Club, Bemboka Social Club, Candelo-Bemboka Rugby League Club, Bemboka Braves Soccer Club and Bega Archers.
Overarching project scope and priority inclusions were discussed and agreed upon; from there concept design development progressed. The concept design was distributed to stakeholders and a follow-up meeting held on site in October 2021. Minor amendments and scope requests arose and recommendations were made to Council for endorsement.
This project is fully funded by the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications under Phase 2 of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
Amount funded: $279,920
