Recognising Marie Gregan...

Marie Gregan served as a City of Marion Councillor from 1987 to 1993 (East Ward, Ward 1).

She campaigned to stop the Mobile Library service from being closed, was a strong supporter of the Glandore Community Centre and worked tirelessly to improve services and policy with the aged community.

After a prolonged battle with cancer she passed away on 6 May 1993.

The naming of the playground was the way the community chose to acknowledge her service (Council purchased the Glandore Community Centre from the State Government later in 1995).
