Things to do
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.
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.
