Stealthy toddlers no match for Thomas Jack Park fence

7 December 2017

Local mum Ashlee McKay and children Ronald, George and Macy swing into action to use the newly fenced Thomas Jack Park playground.

Local families can breathe a sigh of relief these holidays, with the installation of a new fence at Thomas Jack Park meaning worry-free play for parents and bubs in Dalby.

Completely enclosing the existing play-space, the fence features three secured entrances from the Condamine Street side, and a further two from Pratten Street.

Championed by concerned local parents, Council has invested over $45,000 into the project, ensuring the safety of children in the park for generations to come.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Parks, Open Spaces and Cemeteries Councillor Carolyn Tillman said the new addition means families can enjoy a fun and safe festive season in our region.

“With Christmas just around the corner, there’s no better time for our families to play and picnic at Thomas Jack Park,” she said.

“Being next to a main road, we know the concerns that our local families share when it comes to having a day out in the Park.

“So, with this brand new fence around the playground, the littlies can run around without Mum and Dad having to worry; and that’s our main priority.”

Local mum Sarah Pearce said the new playground fencing would give peace of mind to parents using the popular park.

“The fence is fantastic — this way we won’t be stressed about one of the children running out into the busy highway traffic, and we can just enjoy the park.”
