The new Denman Memorial Park is a hit


The new Denman Memorial Park is a huge hit. 

The upgrade works formed a part of the third stage of the Denman Revitalisation Project and saw $350,000 worth of playground equipment upgraded.

The NSW Government contributed $200,000 to the playground project that was a $350,000 upgrade in total at the corner of Isobel and Paxton Street in Denman.

"I'm very proud of our Council staff in what they've come up with and what they've done," said Deputy Mayor Rod Scholes.

"The new playground is for everyone regardless of age or ability and has a decidedly farming and heritage theme, it's quite quirky with the way that it looks and it reflects the heritage, farming and the Hunter River that runs around the town."

"It's got all-inclusive equipment including an arched bridge, a farm panel which provides balance and dexterity exercises for seniors," he said. 

Upper Hunter MP Michael Johnsen said he couldn't be happier with how it all looks.

"The park here has come up absolutely beautifully, Council has done a fantastic job."

"It's taxpayers dollars invested very well in the local community."
