Bathurst Community Op Shop has put a series of proposals up for the state government's My Community Project scheme designed to cater for a variety of age groups.
The store's proposals include a sheltered pavilion for the Church Lane Community Garden and a coin-activated miniature karting activity involving a scaled-down Mount Panorama circuit.
"We want to provide improved entertainment opportunities for pre-adolescent children and leverage tourism opportunities that arise from new amusements," Bathurst Community Op Shop president Tony Thorpe said.
"It's all about building on the value of Bathurst's recreational options."
Mr Thorpe said the two proposals are part of the store's aim to foster in positive social experiences for the entire community.
"We established the Community Garden four years ago, and we'd like to install a shelter to protect the 60 garden beds from storms," he said.
"With the miniature Mount Panorama track, people will obviously be attracted to it by the real deal, but we'd like to see it become a family-focused activity."
The store's proposals total $87,057, and Mr Thorpe said he has other community projects on the horizon.
"We're looking to help anyone from broken families to grandparents, children and tourists," he said.
"While we're not as visible as other organisations, we're quietly working to achieve results for the community."
