The landscaping of an area around Cootamundra Rotary Club’s Peace Pavilion in Albert Park has finally been completed.

Opened in November 2014 by the State Governor, His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley, the Peace Pavilion recognises Cootamundra Rotary’s humanitarian efforts whilst providing a place for relaxation and contemplation.

Rotary Club director and project manager Hugh Hamilton said the area was designed by Georgia Alexander with funds provided by the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council. 

“Landscaping the area has achieved several objectives by beautifying the adjacent area and enhancing that whole corner section of Albert Park,” Mr Hamilton said.

Member for Cootamundra Katrina Hodgkinson MP said the pavilion’s completion was an important milestone for the town.

“Cootamundra Rotary’s Peace Pavilion, and the Albert Park precinct, is a very special attraction to Cootamundra for residents and visitors alike,” Ms Hodgkinson said.
