Round up your family and friends and enjoy a night under the stars at the Lidcombe@night – Wyatt Park event on Saturday, 18 June.
After months of upgrades and construction at Wyatt Park, Cumberland City Council is inviting residents to join in the celebration of cultural diversity and enjoy some of the infrastructure upgrades along Church Street .
As part of the NSW Government’s Places to Love program, the upgrades include a newly completed 170 lineal metre footpath between the entrance to Lidcombe Oval and an existing path on the western side of Church Street. The footpath is set to be decorated with murals and public art installations to bring vibrancy and colour to the area. These works will connect two locations within the public space, increase safety for residents as well as provide a safer cycling route for children and young people.
A pedestrian and cyclist respite area is also in the works to allow community members to take a break and enjoy the ambience and serenity of the park. This designated area will be fitted out with additional seating, an aqua fountain and a community bike stand.
To highlight these works and celebrate one of Cumberland City’s proudest town centres, Cumberland City Council will be hosting a family friendly event, Lidcombe@night which will feature an outdoor cinema screening of Spiderman – Into the Spiderverse. There will also be a range of community stalls and clinics hosted by local sporting organisations and clubs including the Western Sydney Wanderers and The Western Magpies. OzHarvest and the Rotary Club will also be serving up food alongside shakes from Bike n' Blend on the night.
Mayor Lisa Lake said that Cumberland Council continues to deliver initiatives that improve the local area and pave the way for improved local public space.
“Residents deserve better public spaces that are more vibrant and active. The last two years of confinement has highlighted this.”
“We want to beautify our local areas with infrastructure and walkable areas to encourage our residents and visitors to enjoy and connect with these public spaces”, she said.
Lidcombe@night - Wyatt Park will be held on Saturday June 18 from 5pm-9pm, for more information visit the website https://www.cumberland.nsw.gov.au/lidcombenight-wyatt-park
