REFLECTIONS will unveil an exciting vision for the Lake Glenbawn Holiday Park, near Scone, at a special Community Feedback Day this month.

Residents and interested parties can view the organisation's proposed Recreation Hub along the eastern foreshore - should it be successful in receiving NSW Government grant funding - on Saturday, September 21, between 10am and 2pm.

Reflections Holiday Parks CEO Steve Edmonds said there would be free park entry and food and refreshments for the event, as well as a jumping castle.

"Lake Glenbawn is a key recreational space for the community and visitors to the region and we want to make a great space ever better," he explained.

"We have a great vision for the park and we are inviting the community and all interested stakeholders to come to the park, meet our team and see what we have proposed.

"As part of the first stage of fulfilling this vision, we are seeking feedback and, more importantly, support from the community on a grant application for the creation of a Recreation Hub at the eastern foreshore of the park.

"The grant submission is for the Regional Growth - Stronger Country Community Fund provided by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and the Environment.

"We will be asking for up to $1 million through the process and invite everyone who loves Lake Glenbawn, as much as we do, to have some input and show their support.

"The Recreation Hub could include such elements as an all-inclusive play space, sensory garden, enhanced landscaping, BMX track, outdoor event space and additional picnic areas for families to enjoy.

"Reflections is about encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle, in an environment that allows communities across NSW to enjoy amazing locations with family and friends."

Mr Edmonds said Reflections was a self-funded organisation with all surplus funds reinvested back into the group's 37 holiday parks and reserves across NSW.

"Our inland parks throughout country NSW, including at Lake Glenbawn, are staffed by warm-hearted people who love rural country life and we will continue to seek funding opportunities through the NSW Government to continue to invest in our parks and our people," he added.
