Waterlily Park in Ocean Shores is celebrating the completion of its second stage on Sunday 25 February from 3 till 6pm and are inviting everyone to come and join in the fun.
Ocean Shores Public School are planning games, a treasure hunt, stalls and live performances for everyone to enjoy.
‘To realise this stage, quite a few locals came together in a joint effort,’ said stage two coordinator Tina Petroff.
They have installed a shelter, new picnic area and a BBQ creating new spaces for families to enjoy a relaxing day at the park.
‘Volunteers are rarely acknowledged for their hard work and the value they add to a project and Waterlily Community Playscape could not continue to grow without these dedicated helpers. Many thanks to Yoram (Tiny), Stan, Fabricio, Jason, David, Orit, Omri, Helen and Tom.’
In 2016 the Waterlily Playscape Committee received $50K funding from a successful grant to
community building partnership announced by Tamara Smith, MP for Ballina and they have worked hard to create an inclusive space with full wheelchair access BBQ and picnic area.
The committee co-funded a vivid mural with the Ocean Shores Tennis Clu drawn on the external Tennis clubhouse walls by Daniel Hend, a local artist, extending the nature theme of the park.They will also be continuing to develop the site with plantings of established trees, and park benches.
Unfortunately alongside new interest in the park, locals notice more bad behaviour onsite. The
Waterlily Playscape committee is calling for a community action, encouraging locals to report to the police observed inappropriate behaviour while at Waterlily Park on 131444 or 000.
