UPGRADED AMENITIES FOR SEYMOUR’S KINGS PARK

The Seymour community now has access to new toilet facilities and other amenities at Kings Park, thanks to $600,000 in funding from the Victorian Government.

Minister for Regional Development Jaclyn Symes today helped open the upgraded amenities at Kings Park Pavilion, part of the $780,000 Improving Liveability – Better Parks for Seymour project.

Kings Park is one of three public parks in Seymour receiving upgrades as part of the initiative, along with Goulburn Park and Chittick Park.

The improved Kings Park amenities include the creation of two fully accessible unisex showers and changeroom facilities within the main pavilion, accessible public toilets and better lighting inside the exhibition building.

Kings Park is a widely used and valued recreational space for the town, home of the Seymour Football Netball Club and other local sporting clubs, hosts the annual Seymour Alternative Farming Expo, Seymour Show and numerous agricultural, sporting, community and social events year round.

Upgrades are underway at Goulburn Park, with newly refurbished toilet facilities and the dual-level fishing platform on the Goulburn River.

Chittick Park will also be revitalised with a specially designed outdoor space for youth recreational activities and surrounding landscaping and other amenities.

The upgrades as part of the Improving Liveability – Better Parks for Seymour project were considered key priorities of the Goulburn Regional Partnership and will be an ideal complement to the Victorian Government’s wider Seymour Revitalisation initiative which seeks to help promote the town as an even better place to live, work and invest.

The Labor Government have invested heavily in Seymour in the past 5 years, including upgrades to Seymour P-12 College, St Mary’s College, Seymour Hospital, Barrabill House, GoTafe and the rail underpass.
