The park redevelopment saw a new playground, exercise area, paths, bollard lighting and drainage installed, as well as new trees planed, fencing installed and the refurbishment of the existing pavilion.

The redevelopment is expected to be completed by the end of the month if weather is good.


A Baw Baw Shire spokesperson said in a media release the council welcomes submissions to the proposal.
