Feedback wanted on new playspace for Kilmore

Kilmore will soon be home to a brand-new half-court basketball area and a new play space with shade sails at Centenary Drive Reserve.

The $190,000 project, funded through the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund and Mitchell Shire ($95,000 each), will address a key gap in Kilmore’s park infrastructure and improve opportunities for play and recreation in this area.

The old play space at Centenary Drive Reserve will be removed to make way for the half-court basketball area. A new play space and shade sail will be installed at another section of the park.

The key features of the project are:

  • Construction of a new play space
  • A new shade sail for the play space
  • Installation of half-court basketball area to increase opportunities for recreation and play
  • Increased seating and shelter
  • New garden beds, tree plantings and landscaping works

The project will see the play equipment at nearby Link Reserve retired to due to its age and poor condition.

Quotes attributable to Mitchell Shire Mayor Councillor Bill Chisholm

“It is great to see the Centenary Drive Reserve in Kilmore get a much-needed upgrade, so children can continue to enjoy the space,” he said.

“The new play space will feature state of the art equipment, and something I think residents will be excited for is the new basketball half-court. Being able to encourage healthy play is important for Mitchell Shire.

“This project is currently open for community feedback. We want to hear your thoughts on the planned upgrade before we go ahead with it to make sure we are ticking all the right boxes.

“We are trying to increase opportunities for our residents to play outdoors and enjoy our brilliant facilities.”
