Hornsby Council last week passed its 2014-15 capital works program, detailing $18 million in projects.
The shire’s open space assets are the big winner, with more than $3.8 million for upgrades to various parks and ovals, including Ray Park in Carlingford and James Henty Park in Cherrybrook, Mayor Steve Russell said.
Ray Park will get new playground equipment, shelters, picnic tables, barbecues and a dog-off-leash area. Greenway Park, Cherybrook will get a lighting upgrade.
Other big ticket items include $1.5 million for the local sealed road rehabilitation program and $1 million to begin replacing the Hornsby station footbridge over George Street.
