You may notice things looking a little refreshed at the reserve adjacent to Avalon Surf Club following some works recently completed by Council.

The works are part of the foreshore renewal program and include a new path, returfing, sandstone edging, new bin stations, drinking fountain, bike hoops, a new shower tower and garden beds.

The new timber ramp will also make it easier for lifeguards, emergency and beach cleaning vehicles to access the beach.

Prior to works commencing, Council consulted with Avalon Beach SLSC and Avalon Preservation Association who were supportive of the project.

Avalon SLSC Building Manager and clubbie for 20 years Rob Hopton is very impressed by the works.

“Council has done a fantastic job not only for the club but the community. The slopping grassed area was very worn and unsafe for the elderly and disabled to access.

“It is now much easier for wheelchairs and prams to get down to the water meaning everyone can enjoy our wonderful beach.” Mr Hopton said.

Concept plans were publicly displayed to inform the community and provide an opportunity for questions or comments.

The works which are now complete have improved public amenity, safety and accessibility in this area.
