THE growing number of Children in Lethbridge have a fresh place to play into the future.

A new playground has been installed at Lethbridge Recreation Reserve with a few slides, swings and seesaws, and climbing equipment.

New seats have been installed, and path and landscaping works have been undertaken aiming to make the area more pleasant, comfortable and accessible for families.

The Lethbridge Play Space was officially opened last week by the Member for Eureka Michaela Settle on behalf of the Minister for Regional Development Gayle Tierney.

Regional Development Victoria funding worth $200,000 covered the project which saw the employment of almost 30 construction workers.

Golden Plains Shire mayor, Cr Brett Cunningham and Member for Eureka, Michaela Settle waved in the play space’s new era.


“Young people deserve somewhere they can play with their friends,” Ms Settle said.

“It’s fantastic that this play space is ready to welcome kids from across the community, and while I don’t think you’ll see me going down the slide anytime soon, I know the kids are going to have a blast.”

Lethbridge’s population is expected to grow in the coming years, as the trend of city families moving to the country continues.

Lethbridge Recreation Reserve is a short walk from the local primary school, the Lethbridge Lake, and general store.
