New push for Patton Park upgrade

Patton St Park concept drawing

Council will again push for upgrades for Patton Park, this time through the State Government's Stronger Country Communities fund.

Broken Hill is requesting $815,000 in funding under the program, which is designed to assist with projects valued over $100,000.

Council was previously unsuccessful in a bid to have the whole Patton Park upgrade funded through the State's Sport & Recreation Infrastructure grants program.
