The Rotary Club of Lower Blue Mountains – Shelter, improved access and refurbishment for Whitton Park, Glenbrook
A long-held vision for improved access and amenities at Whitton Park, Glenbrook, has been realised thanks to a partnership between Blue Mountains City Council, The Rotary Club of Lower Blue Mountains and the NSW Government.
A new accessible concrete path connecting all-abilities parking to a renovated picnic shelter, with newly-installed accessible seating and tables, has been constructed.
Sponsored by the Rotary Club of the Lower Blue Mountains and delivered by Blue Mountains City Council, the Whitton Park upgrade was possible due to funding received from the state government's My Community Projects grants program.
The Rotary Club of Lower Blue Mountains President Michele Ellery said, "On behalf of the Rotary Club of Lower Blue Members, I offer heartfelt thanks to NSW Government - My Community Project, Blue Mountains City Council, whose support has been instrumental, our Local members, our wonderful community and up there at the top is David and Carolyn Cook who both drove this project with a vision for inclusivity for all. Thank you to District Governor David Clark, John Stalling, Past President Michelle Fisher for supporting this project and what a wonderful acknowledgement as part of our Club’s 50th Anniversary year."
The Official Whitton Park opening and Tree planting Ceremony will be held on Thursday 26th November at 11am, Whitton Park, Moore street, Glenbrook NSW 2773.
