Council will transform Hugh Johnson Boulevard Reserve in 2021-2022. This follows the Marion Council endorsement of the concept plan on 8 June 2021.

Key elements of the plan include:

  • Junior and adventure play
  • Basketball and fitness node
  • Nature trail
  • Shared path for bikes, trikes and pedestrians
  • Enchanted forest nature play
  • Public art
  • BMX /pump track
  • Additional carparking
  • New public toilet
  • Improvements to the existing stormwater pond

Consultation on the draft concept via Making Marion occurred in October/ November 2020 and April /May 2021. Community drop in sessions were held end November 2020 and early May 2021.

Council recently received matching funding from the State Government’s Open Space and Places for People grant program to construct the reserve upgrade in December 2021. Completion is expected by mid 2022.
