Have your say on Knox Park Youth Precinct

HERE'S your chance to have a say on the proposed $1 million youth precinct in Murwillumbah.

Tweed Shire Council is seeking community feedback and ideas regarding the precinct, which would be located at Knox Park.

A skate, BMX and scooter event will be held at the park on August 3 from 11am to 3pm and people can attend to voice their opinion.

For more information about the event call 02 6670 2736.

"The project is the development of a dedicated public youth space, for unstructured recreational, social and leisure activities, which will incorporate a plaza-style skate and scooter area and adventure playground for young people and families," Tweed Council previously stated.

Council will receive $500,000 for the project from the Regional Development Australia Fund. Under the terms of the funding, the project must be completed by December 18, 2015.
