Wentworth Park Rotunda
In June 2004 we handed over an undercover barbecue site at Wentworth Park. This is a popular recreation area alongside Howrah Beach. there are sports fields, children play areas and plenty of space for family activities.
Members of the club built the rotunda with the generous assistance of suppliers and expertise from trades’ people. The rotunda features an electric barbeque, facilities for the disabled and a large covered area providing shelter for over 40 people.
Clarence Council provided the design and architectural drawings and the barbeque.
PP Norm Cooper, who oversaw the project, said it had proven to be an extremely worthwhile one for the club and had provided the community with an asset valued at over $20,000”. The Club had investigated a range of different project ideas, but the Wentworth Park barbecue was eventually selected because of the benefits to so many local residents.
The Mayor of Clarence, Cathy Edwards said Council was grateful to the Rotary Club of Howrah for the construction of the new facility.
Thanks to the following organisations who supported the project —
