Taylor Riverfront Precinct was officially opened by the Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP on Friday 15 October.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the $3,885,201 Taylor Riverfront Precinct project was supported by the Federal Government via a funding grant of $1,394,385 from the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

“The Taylor Riverfront Precinct project has revitalised the town centre via the construction of a water play area, river viewing deck, public artwork, landscaping, new shelters, furniture and barbeques.”

“The Precinct provides a safe and enjoyable space for people of all ages to enjoy, enhancing the region’s tourism appeal thereby delivering economic benefits to local businesses and the community more broadly.”

“This project delivered economic benefits through the use of local suppliers and contractors and delivered important employment outcomes, supporting six jobs during the construction.” Mr Pasin said.

Mayor Neil Martinson said Council wishes to acknowledge the $1,394,385 contribution from the Federal Government Building Better Regions fund which made this project possible.

“The precinct has created a relaxing and enjoyable area for families especially for children with the water feature area within the Harry Clark Fountain.”

“On behalf of the Renmark Paringa Council I thank the Federal Government for its contribution and Tony Pasin’s commitment to our community.”

Taylor Riverfront Precinct was a joint project between Federal Government ($1,394,385), South Australian Government ($548,000) and Renmark Paringa Council ($1,942,816).
