Playgrounds swinging into action

A number of newly renovated playgrounds have come to life recently, providing safe, modern and fun play spaces for the enjoyment of young families across our region.

Muston Street playground and Innes Lake playground are now open for play and the feedback has been nothing short of amazing.

Local children have played a big role in the playground designs, with imaginations running wild to create tractor sculptures, climbing webs, picnic settings and veggie gardens, and much more.

In the last two years, 17 parks, playgrounds and reserves have received more than $2 million worth of upgrades, and we encourage local families to take the opportunity to experience and explore the wonderful range of outdoor facilities across our region.

And with more to come, the fun may never end.

To plan your next adventure, why not use our interactive map at pmhc.nsw.gov.au/parks. Happy exploring.

A call out for volunteers

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is on the lookout for volunteers who’d like to help out at a range of community events and activities.

Volunteering is a great way to give something back to our community, to meet new people and learn new skills, but most of all its fun.

From events at the Glasshouse and our libraries, through to the indulgence of Tastings on Hastings, and the popular Graffiti Blasters initiative, there’s a volunteering opportunity for everyone.

From one hour spots, to full days or weekends, our volunteering programs are extremely flexible and can work around busy lifestyles and work commitments.

So, if you’re interested in meeting new people, learning new skills and giving back to the community, why not join in a range of exciting new volunteer opportunities available across our region.

For more information on becoming a volunteer, or to sign up visit pmhc.nsw.gov.au/volunteering or call council on 6581 8111.
