A project to improve the amenities  at the public reserve in the heart of Crookwell was opened last month.

The Kiamma Creek Reserve Project was a joint effort between the Veolia Mulwaree Trust, Upper Lachlan Shire Council, Crookwell Lions Club, Kiamma Creek Landcare Group and the local community. It includes a new amenities block and enhanced garden and path area for the community to enjoy all year round. The Veolia Mulwaree Trust’s contribution was a grant of $32,208 toward the project.

Upper Lachlan Shire Council’s Director Environment and Planning Tina Dodson said the area was now a beautiful creek side reserve with appropriate amenities to be used by locals and visitors alike.

“The establishment of the amenities facility and the landscaping work consisting of gravel pathways, drainage works, the installation of five new park benches and a considerable amount of planting of native species has transformed the area into a beautiful creek-side reserve to be enjoyed by all and future generations,” Mrs Dodson said.

Kiamma Creek Landcare aims to continue the beautification and environment restoration of the reserve with future plantings and willow removal.
