Dubbo Adventure Park

This petition had 645 supporters

Dubbo’s current park facilities are fragmented.

We have outdated equipment in shaded areas and updated equipment in non-shaded areas.

Through late spring, summer and early autumn this problem reduces the variety of facilities available for young families to take their children.

Dubbo is in the midst of a obesity crisis, our city is a gold medalist on the national stage in terms of lifestyle related disease rates and obesity per capita. 

Depression & anxiety runs rampant in adolescence’s & adults, and our younger generation are feeling the effects. 

Furthermore, lifestyle diseases which used to be reserved only for the older population are now presenting in children under 12, all of which are preventable.

The newly elected Dubbo Regional Council is now in a position to influence the lifestyle of Dubbo’s Citizens for the next few generations.

As the dust is settling from the elections a clear direction seems clouded.

With proposals of a lake and a drag strip to encourage more tourism, I fear improving the lifestyle of current residents and potentially attracting new young families from larger cities will take a back seat.

Dubbo Regional Council needs to review current playground facilities and upgrade/repair where needed and seriously consider a sizable, innovative and engaging park to provide a sensory experience for our children and encourage healthier habits.
