Oberon Dam picnic area open, playground closed

15 January 2018

WaterNSW is advising visitors to Oberon Dam that the popular park will remain open for picnics and day visits, while maintenance work is underway on the playground, which will be off limits.

The playground area will be closed from this week to allow for maintenance work on ageing equipment which will also be assessed for its alignment with contemporary safety standards.

However the rest of the popular picnic area near the dam wall – including the amenities - will remain open to visitors from 7.30am to 8pm as per usual.

Oberon Dam is located approximately 3km south of Oberon on the Fish River and is currently at 75% of its storage capacity.

Information on recreational activities at the dam is available from the Oberon visitors’ information centre on 02 6329 8210.
