Help more to enjoy great outdoors

NEW barbecue and picnic shelter facilities at Garrison Point will make it more enjoyable for everyone.

Already an extremely popular recreational area for the local community with access to picnic facilities, shade shelters, barbecues, playground equipment, disabled access and public toilets, the new facilities will ensure it can be enjoyed by many more.

The works were funded through the Stronger Communities Program – after a request from Federal MP for Blaxland, Jason Clare and Canterbury Bankstown Council. Grants are between $5,000 and $20,000, to not-for-profit organisations for small capital works projects that improve our local community.

“Nothing beats a barbie on a summer’s day and this will make the park more

accessible for people with a disability,” Mr Clare said.

Mayor Khal Asfour says this is a great example of federal and local governments working together to deliver real benefits to the community.

“Garrison Point Reserve is one of CBCity’s most popular parks, so this upgrade will be enjoyed by thousands of people,” he said.
