Shire Project Brings Shade to Town Beach

Published on Friday, 17 February 2023 at 5:00:00 PM

The Shade Sails installation is now complete at Town Beach, thanks to funding from the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Programme and from Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation as part of the Total Solar Eclipse event.  This has resulted in much-needed the shade coverage of the playground area.

Installation was completed ahead of schedule, with contractors working tirelessly to attach shade sails despite windy conditions. The sail material is robust enough to withstand full-sun all year round and need only be removed if cyclonic winds are expected.

“It’s fantastic to see our kids can play under shade on the playground now, especially in this warm weather” said Shire President Eddie Smith, “The Shade Sails, like many of the dozens of the projects currently being delivered by the Shire, really boost the amenities for the whole community.”

Works on the ablution facilities at Town Beach are still underway, with works expected to be completed by the end of the month.
