Equestrian Projects

Funded by Division 5
We’ve got a good focus on equestrian activities in Division 5 and some recent projects include:

A new Round Yard at Tom Rose Park, Wandin Street Nerang.

A new Round Yard at Darwalla Reserve, Nathanvale.
(These round yards are really good quality features and will provide a lot of great opportunity for riders and horses alike to learn skills safely.)

Healing Hooves at Country Paradise (Nerang) has purchased relocatable barriers/stalls to ensure the horses and ponies are able to be relocated and kept safe during flood events at Country Paradise.
Funds have been allocated to construct a HQ for Healing Hooves in recognition of the amazing and impacting work they do for people in need of our support.

New Learn to Swim facility at Nerang Pool!

Yes, this year we will see the complete replacement of the existing learn-to-swim facility and it is going to be a knock-out. 

At a cost of $950,000, the new facility will be approximately 15m x 8m and enclosed in a purpose built facility, with a ramp access. The water temperature will be 32 degrees and this is good for both swimming and pool-based therapy programs and activities. Although not strictly hydrotherapy, which is normally 34 degrees or more, the facility can provide similar benefits. An evaluation is being undertaken to determine the ideal depth to cater for both needs. 

Construction is anticipated from April 2019 and will take about six months.

New Water Play facility in Nerang

Planning work has continued during 2017-18 to determine the best location for and features of the new water play park. For those who are unaware, this facility would be conceptually based on the rockpools in the Broadwater parklands – free access, low-risk, fun and wet! It is proposed this will be in Bischof Park in the centre of Nerang.

Planning work has been slower than anticipated but $100,000 has been secured to finalise the detailed engineering design this coming year. $1.3 million is available for construction in 2019 (before summer).

Watch this space for more details!
