Park upgrades on track

Works on Gordon’s first ever skate space and 3×3 basketball court are on track with work on the skate park due to be completed by July 2022, following completion of the skatespace at Mill Park in Ballan.

Implemented by Moorabool Shire Council in conjunction with the Gordon Public Park Committee of Management (COM) these upgrades will deliver exciting new facilities for the Gordon community.

Council officers and the committee of management have been collaborating since February 2021, planning  upgrades to complement existing facilities.

First identified in the 2014-2019 Gordon Public Park Master Plan, community enthusiasm for these facilities was evident during the community consultation undertaken by the skatespace contractors, CONVIC, in December 2021. Our recent community survey confirmed strong support for these upgrades.

The Committee continues to work with Council officers on planning for stage 2 of the upgrades, which will feature further landscaping works of the site including drainage, safety measures and  footpath and fencing works.,

Stage 2, worth $325,000, is funded by the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Infrastructure Program.
