Community connects at McLeod Park, South Windsor

Council hosted a free community celebration at McLeod Park, South Windsor on Thursday, 2 March to celebrate recent park improvements totalling $220,000.

The celebrations included cake cutting with Mayor of Hawkesbury, Mary Lyons-Buckett, Councillors, and the NSW Department of Family and Community Services. The Department of Family and Community Services provided $50,000 from the Social Housing Community Improvement grant, and Council invested $170,000 to improve the park.

The park now boasts new picnic shelters, new seating, a new bubbler and fresh landscaping to create a functional, accessible outdoor community space for everyone to enjoy.

The event offered face painting, a pop-up library, and games for children from local preschools, a Council sponsored free sausage sizzle by the Rotary Club of Windsor, and many local services provided information to the community.

It was a great opportunity for the South Windsor community to connect, the Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Mary Lyons-Buckett said.

Family Planning NSW, Bligh Park Community Services Inc., Peppercorn Services Inc., The Women’s Cottage, Hawkesbury River County Council, Hawkesbury Child and Family Services, Hawkesbury District Health Service, Hawkesbury Community Kitchen, Alphabet Academy preschool, Windsor Preschool, Windsor District Baptist Church, and YMCA staff from the Hawkesbury Indoor Stadium and Oasis Aquatic and Leisure Centre all attended on the day.

The park is located on the corner of George and Campbell Streets, South Windsor.

This event is part of a series of Council events to be held this year that aim to connect our community. If you would like to know more upcoming events in the Hawkesbury, please visit Hawkesbury Events Facebook.
