The Berri Barmera Council will be undertaking works on the Monash Adventure Park over the coming months, commencing in late July. This has been made possible by grant funding from the State Government and Council, that will result in existing equipment improved and new equipment installed, including items for the disabled. Council advises that the park will be closed from 1 September until 5 September 2014 inclusive to allow works to occur in a safe environment. Further closures may be necessary and information will be provided when these dates will occur. For further information please contact Gary Brinkworth on 8582 1922 or gbrinkworth@bbc.sa.gov.au
