Lake Endeavour will become the first developed natural water location for recreational use in the Parkes Shire thanks to $ 1 million in funding from the NSW Government.
The exciting development will enable locals and visitors to enjoy the fantastic natural beauty of Lake Endeavour.
The NSW Government's Places to Swim program will deliver safety upgrades as well as the installation of new recreational infrastructure to encourage people to get active in, on and around Lake Endeavour - from swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding, to fishing, walking and relaxing by the water.
The recreational use of Lake Endeavour has been a long-held desire for many in our community, and with the funding received Parkes Shire Council is delighted to bring this vision to life.
The project is expected to be completed in mid-2024.
