The Joe Hyam Reserve in North Nowra has undergone a complete makeover thanks to a NSW Government grant.

With construction works complete, the installation of brand-new playground equipment promises to delight local families, while new bench seating, shade sails and landscaping have turned the reserve into a recreational destination.

Liza Butler, State Member for the South Coast, said Joe Hyam Reserve has long been popular with locals and visitors for its natural beauty.

“The upgrade to the park is a great boost to the local community so locals and visitors can get out and enjoy our beautiful city,” she said.

“These sorts of upgrades are an important part of boosting well-being in Nowra and across the region.

“Whether it’s bringing the kids for a play outdoors, for parents and carers to join up and form connections, or for travellers to enjoy a safe stop-over parks really do improve the amenity of our communities.”

The new playground equipment includes:

  • Combination slide tower
  • Triple bay swing set
  • See-saws
  • Rocker
  • Game panels
  • Nature play area

Deputy Mayor Matthew Norris said the transformation of the reserve was thanks to both the input from the community on the park design, and a grant from the NSW Government.

“We’re proud to unveil the renovated Joe Hyam Reserve which has been created to bring joy to locals and visitors who want to spend their time in the great outdoors,” Cr Norris said.

“The exciting new playground equipment guarantees to keep kids active while the new landscape design makes it a family-friendly space where all should feel welcome,” he said.

“The stunning facilities provide a safe and enjoyable space for the community to come together and make North Nowra an even better place to live.”
