Kempsey is on the Mid North Coast of NSW, the region is blessed with gorgeous, uncrowded beaches and spectacular wilderness such as Hat Head National Park. A legend of Australian country music, Slim Dusty, is honoured in Kempsey, less than five hours’ drive north of Sydney. Riverside Park is situated on the banks of the Macleay River in Kempsey and has terrific facilities for families to gather to celebrate various functions.

An upgrade took place to accommodate the growing number of visitors to the area. A new BBQ, playground equipment, bench seating , and picnic setting have been installed for visitors to enjoy.

When it came to the seating and settings, Kempsey Council chose the increasing popular recycled plastic range from Replas due to the low maintenance and the environmental benefits.

Marilyn Breen , the Community Project Officer from Council said ‘’ The recycled plastic seating has been very well received and has shown that it is very robust and pleasant to sit on “

A great Council initiative to introduce recycled plastic which is the true form of recycling which brings the waste plastic back into a usable product.
