Member for Barker Tony Pasin has announced a $400,000 funding windfall for the Millicent Parkland Redevelopment project.

The development of the Domain precinct into a vibrant community open space has been strategically planned by the Wattle Range Council as a major economic and social activation project linking established walking running and cycling trails and giving healthy lifestyle choices to a wide range of age groups.

The $640,000 redevelopment will involve three main areas: the rage cage, nature play area and domain playground, as well as solar lighting, surveillance cameras and landscaping including shade and shelter and bench seating.

“This is a significant project for the Millicent community and I’m pleased that I can help deliver funding to get it moving and see the plans become a reality sooner. The council has done a wonderful job in planning what will really bring community together by creating a vibrant open space that the whole community can benefit from,” Mr Pasin said.

The funding will be delivered to the Wattle Range Council through the Federal Government’s Community Development Grant fund.
