BECKENHAM families will benefit from an improved park after upgrades to Appledore Street Reserve were completed.

The works, including seating, a shelter, pathways and playground edging, were funded by a $50,000 Local Projects, Local Jobs grant from the State Government.

City of Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said the new work was a boost for local residents.

“Having somewhere sheltered to sit and enjoy our public open spaces is invaluable, especially for parents watching their children playing,” Mayor Dewhurst said.

“Even small upgrades to our reserves can significantly improve the lives of our community members, encouraging residents to get out and play, exercise or simply enjoy the great outdoors.”

Cannington MLA Bill Johnston agreed and said improvements would directly benefit the community.

“I look forward to seeing local families and the wider community take advantage of the new upgrades to Appledore Street Reserve,” Mr Johnston added.

The Local Projects, Local Jobs funding is part of a program to award grants to community organisations to assist with upgrades to facilities and expansions of programs.
