There will be increased fun and joy at the Cowra Aquatic Centre with Cowra Shire Council being successful in receiving $981,202 to implement a splash pad through Round Five of the NSW Govern-ment’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said she has welcomed this exciting project for all ages of the community to enjoy. “I can’t wait to hear the laughter and see the joy in the faces of many children as they enjoy the thrills and excitement of this new water attraction,” Ms Cooke said. “These improvements to the Aquatic Centre will encourage family visits and raise water confidence in younger users.” Cowra Shire Council Mayor Cr Bill West said this is a great announce-ment as this project will allow them to improve and upgrade the Aquatic Centre in various stages.

“The incorporation of a splash pad and construction of a pump shed to service the splash pad will ensure that Council’s long-term plan will be imple-mented in due course,” Cr West said. The splash pad will integrate with the existing toddler’s pool creating an area specifically designed for young-er users whilst incorporating inclusive design features that will be accessi-ble to children with all levels of ability. Over five rounds of the Stronger Coun-try Communities Fund, more than $5.5 million in funding has been awarded to 22 projects across the Cowra Local Government Area.
