Stage two of construction of the play space at wonguim wilam, Warrandyte, will begin on Tuesday, 15 March.
“Stage one created new open space parklands, picnic spaces, an exercise station and a renewed car park. This next stage is even more exciting. This is all for the children! They will love the new play space, and the artwork will add even more colour and vibrance to this beautiful area,” said Mayor Cr Michelle Kleinert.
The upgrade will include:
- a new play space
- a new shelter, drinking fountain, BBQ and picnic area
- new art, including community pottery pieces created at the Warrandyte Pottery Expo.
“Warrandyte is a passionate community with great appreciation and respect for its heritage. The new play space is designed to connect children with nature and offer play opportunities for children of all ages and abilities,” said Cr Kleinert.
The pathway through the play space will be closed during the construction, which is expected to take around three months, depending on potential weather delays.
The Victorian Government supports this project through the Local Parks Revitalisation Program contributing $300,000 to the project, with Council allocating $700,000 in its annual capital works budget.
