In welcome news for Abernethy residents, Cessnock City Council is set to install new shade sails over the playground at Abernethy Park later this month.
The project will be funded by Council’s 2019/20 Recreation Facilities Program and follows on from works completed in 2018/19 where a pathway was installed around the playground and associated drainage and landscaping completed.
Installed in time for the warmer months, the shade sails will reduce exposure to UV radiation and keep the equipment cooler in extreme weather conditions.
Locals may have noticed new shade sails popping up in parks across the Cessnock LGA including Log of Knowledge Park Kurri Kurri, Centenary Park Abermain, Maybury Peace Park Weston, Whitburn Park Greta, Buckland Avenue Park Cessnock and Poppet Head Park Kitchener.
These installations are part of Cessnock City Council’s Shade Sail Program which has been partly funded by the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent is pleased to see another shade sail going up over a local playground.
“As we continue to upgrade our local parks, it is wonderful to see so many children and families utilising these facilities and the shade sails will ensure everyone is sun safe.”
