Forbes' previously much-loved BMX track can get a major renovation thanks to some grant funding that has come council's way.
Forbes Shire Council has received $2 million from the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program to roll out the Lake Activation Plan.
As part of that, they're asking locals - especially during Youth Week - to have their say on what improvements are needed at our BMX track.
Some of their suggestions are:
- Bike racks
- Drinking water fountain
- Murals / public art
- Formal carparks
They're asking those who use the area - or who would if it was cleaned up! - to vote for their three most important inclusions.
Go on to the Forbes Youth Action Team Facebook page to give them your feedback!
The $2 million has already seen new fountains installed in Lake Forbes - have a look at how they're different in this earlier story - and will also see some pedestrian improvements.
Forbes Shire Council adopted its Lake Activation Plan in 2019, as a 20-year vision for the area.
