AS RESTRICTIONS continue to be eased across the state, residents now have more options to stay entertained outdoors.
Leeton Shire Council has confirmed areas such as the Leeton Skate Park and playground equipment at the town's many parks are now open in accordance with NSW Health guidelines.
This means social distancing will still need to be put in place while using these facilities and people have been encouraged to wipe down play equipment before using it.
The news comes as a welcome respite for families wanting to get out and about more now that restrictions are being eased.
Families can now also use the town's ovals in Palm Avenue to a kick of the ball, while people can also enjoy a picnic in the many parks throughout the shire.
In more good news, council's draft budget for the next financial year has set aside $6000 for a hydration station at Waipukurau Park, while the Noel Pulbrook and Enticknap parks are set for an upgrade.
LED floodlights are also due to be installed at No. 1 Oval.
This project is expected to cost $75,000 and is being fully funded by a grant.
