Shade covers at two children's playgrounds in Forster Tuncurry have been installed in time for summer.
MidCoast Council recently completed the installation of shade structures over playgrounds at Palmgrove Park in Forster and Lone Pine Park in Tuncurry after initial work began in September.
The work was financed through a $550,000 NSW Government Stronger Country Communities Fund grant.
