Council has estimated upgrades to one of the town's most popular recreational spaces, Lake Inverell, will be complete and open to the public by late August.
Supported by the NSW Government, Inverell Shire Council has been engaging with local trades to deliver an $886,000 project to upgrade the lake's facilities.
An amazing water-front boardwalk has been erected to improve visibility of the lake for all ages and abilities, along with kayak launching facilities.
Deputy mayor Anthony Michael said it was important the upgrades catered for all local residents and welcomed visitors.
"I'll be happy with the project is complete. In my opinion it's one of the best we've done as a council," he said.
Structurally designed to be able to handle flooding, the boardwalk will only boost Lake Inverell's visitor numbers. The lake hosts a number of paddle sports enthusiasts, which is also set to grow once the pontoon is complete.
"The viewing platform is in place and so is the boardwalk. The floors are being put down on the boardwalk as we speak so the next step is fitting the top of the pontoon on and once that's done paths will be finished, new picnic facilities will be put in and so will new information signs.

"Then it'll be open for use," Cr Michael said.
