Exciting news from the Dumaresq Dam Reserve! Mayor Sam Coupland and Paul Tolley discuss the recent upgrades, including a new playground, walking paths, and a jetty. The project came in under budget, allowing them to enhance the facilities.

However, Paul raises the need for a continuous loop around the dam for visitors with young children. The mayor acknowledges this and says they’re working on it. They also discuss plans for a side trail connecting the dam to the nearby future rail trail, providing a safer option for cyclists and pedestrians.

The speakers highlight the importance of dedicated walking and cycling paths along the roads, to address safety concerns.

Stay tuned for more updates on the council’s efforts to improve infrastructure and promote active transportation in the area!
