The Glen Innes skatepark we recently completed was celebrated with a visit from the Hon. Barnaby Joyce MP, Member for New England along with the Glen Innes Severn Council Mayor, Rob Barnham who along with the community celebrated the park along with 2 other major projects that were part of the Australian Government’s Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grants Program.

From the Glen Innes Severn Council website:

“It is important that we fund projects based on need and merit and which offer a lasting and tangible impact, tailored to local needs and conditions,” Mr Joyce said.

Glen Innes Severn Council Mayor Rob Banham said today is a significant day for the Glen Innes Severn community as we witness the culmination of collaborative efforts in rebuilding and rejuvenating our region.

“These projects are a collective achievement, and I extend my deepest appreciation to the Australian Government and everyone who contributed to making them a reality,” Cr Banham said.

The Glen Innes skatepark was a redevelopment of the existing park adding in features and elements and has been an exciting addition to the community.
