Moss Vale's well-loved Seymour Park is the focus of a new Masterplan and input from the community is being sought to finalise the plan as well as gather support for grant applications.

Seymour Park is a popular location for picnics, off-leash dog fun and other recreational pursuits but its playground is 23 years old! Set on over 5 hectares on the corner of Spencer and Lovelle Streets in Moss Vale, many residents travel across the Shire to enjoy its established trees and expansive spaces.

The Masterplan outlines a number of staged improvements including formalising of the existing car parking area, two accessible parking spaces, a new playground, nature play area, picnic tables, new amenities building with one accessible and one ambulant cubicle, the removal of the existing playground, demolition of existing amenities block and expansion of the off-leash dog area.

Visit www.yoursaywingecarribee.com.au/parks to learn more about the proposal, share feedback and lend your support by 9am, Tuesday 28 January 2020.

Tell your story

Lend your support to grant applications by sharing a story about your park and why funds should be allocated for improvements.

As noted in the associated report to Council, there is a construction budget for the Seymour Park Playground of $205,900 in the 2019/20 Capital Works Program and $300,000 is allocated in the long term financial plan for the replacement of the amenities block.

Council intends to apply for grant funding via the Everyone Can Play Grant closing in December 2019 with the hope of obtaining funding to complete the playground, associated infrastructure, as well as the amenities block in 2020/21.

Should the grant application be unsuccessful, the capital program will proceed in the stages planned, being playground works in 2019/20 and public toilet works in 2025/26.

Thanks so much for sharing your story and supporting our grant applications!
