Parks in Raby and Eagles Vale will be in line for upgrades if Labor wins the March 25 election.

The $90,000 upgrades will help make the two outdoor spaces safer for children and families.

Half the funding will go towards landscaping improvements and a shade structure at Topaz Park, Eagle Vale.

Shade sails will be installed at Spitfire Park, Raby as part of the upgrade.

The $90,000 commitment was announced by Nathan Hagarty, the Labor candidate for Leppington.

The funding will be provided to Campbelltown Council to deliver the infrastructure.

Mr Hagarty said that it was imperative that local and state governments worked together to deliver much-needed improvements to local parks and green space.

“I got into politics because of the lack of recreational space for families in our local area. It’s part of what drives me to continue fighting for local residents every day,” he said.

“Local families have been suffering for too long under a government that has neglected Western Sydney.

“Funding these projects with Campbelltown Council is a no-brainer. Local families in Eagle Vale and Raby deserve their fair share when it comes to quality parks and play equipment.

“These upgrades to local parks will make them more sun-safe and provide a better playing experience for children.’’

Mr Hagarty reiterated his commitment for fighting for our fair share in the South West.

“Over the past few months, I have met so many local families at their homes, at local shopping centres and at transport hubs. They have one message for the NSW Government – give us our fair share,” he said.

“We need parks, roads, infrastructure and public transport that serves the needs of our local community. I am committed to being a strong local voice that will fight for the needs of our local area.

“It’s time for a fresh approach for local families in the Leppington electorate.’’

  1. Great to see this but little point if council don’t maintain them properly. Too long a period between lawn mowing and litter collection and council need to stop trail bikes in our green space.
