Noreuil Park Foreshore Improvements

Major improvement works are underway at Albury's popular Noreuil Park Foreshore.

We received funding through the NSW Government's Stronger Country Communities Fund and Regional Growth, Environment and Tourism Fund (RGETF) to undertake the following works:

Stage 1 - November to December 2018

  • Installation of concrete pads for the picnic tables including two picnic tables that are linked to the path network for easy access
  • Realigning and widening the Wagirra Trail through the site to assist in reducing the conflict between cyclists and pedestrians
  • Installation of additional play elements in the playground area (completed February)
  • Fencing the playground area to increase safety for families
  • Concreting the gathering area between River Deck Cafe and entry gate of the fenced playground
  • Installation of a drinking fountain and water bottle filling station (installed in January)
  • Installation of bike racks (installed in February)
