Booking Information

Maximum number of tickets booked at one time is 5.

You are invited to help plant more than 5000 shrubs and trees to

celebrate the naming of the new 1km path that links your community

to Woodend Primary School.

The event will be held at Hallett Close Reserve, Sheidow Park, 9.30am

to 10.30am, Saturday, 5 September.

Thank you to the school for running a competition to name the path,

which will be unveiled on the day.

The path runs from Berrima Road to the school and aims to reduce

traffic congestion by encouraging families to leave their cars at home

and walk or cycle.

Stay safe

Please follow the latest government health guidelines regarding the

coronavirus, including physical distancing and good hygiene. Hand

sanitiser will be available. If you are unwell please do not attend.

What else has been done?

The State Government provided $290,000 to fund the path and

towards planting 200 mature trees.

Council contributed $67,000 towards the path, trees, and seven

indented parking bays on Edward Beck Drive. Council delivered the

project by designing the path and managing construction.

Council is also investing $70,000 in upgrading four parks along the path.

Thank you to Woodend Primary School for coming up with the idea for

the path through their participation in the Department of Planning,

Transport and Infrastructure’s Way2Go program.

Marion Council and the Minister for Environment and Water and Member

for Black, David Speirs, are pleased to work together on this project.

We hope to see you at the planting.
