Manningham Council approved the masterplan for Lions Park in Warrandyte on Tuesday 25 September.
The masterplan has been informed by community feedback and proposes a series of upgrades for the area.
Key features of the masterplan include additional picnic facilities, seating and barbecues, an improved path layout, outdoor fitness equipment as well as new drinking fountains, signage, landscaping and public art elements. The masterplan also includes redesigning the car park at Lions Park.
Manningham Mayor Cr Andrew Conlon said the final masterplan provides a guide for the proposed works and improvements in Lions Park.
“Feedback from our community provided great insights into a shared vision for the park, which includes a space to relax by the river, community gathering, paths and walking tracks.
“This is a wonderful area of Warrandyte, the feedback from our community has helped ensure the Lions Park masterplan features places and spaces for the whole community to enjoy,” Cr Conlon said.
The masterplan has been developed following the VicRoads Warrandyte bridge widening project and the removal of the former tennis courts.
Funding for the implementation of the full masterplan is being sought. Council has allocated a total of $450,000 to the upgrade of Lions Park over 2019/20 and 2020/21.
