Input wanted to help activate Ryans Creek Reserve in Kilmore
Mitchell Shire Council is activating Ryans Creek Reserve in Kilmore and is seeking community input on the proposed elements before more detailed plans and designs are developed.
With $1 million for stage 1 activation provided through the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund, the new space will provide a much needed recreation area for people living in developing areas of Kilmore’s west.
Council has identified some key items to include in the reserve and wants community input before proceeding to more detailed plans and designs.
Proposed elements include:
- play equipment
- picnic shelters
- half-court basketball area
- shade sail
- connecting pathways
- solar lighting
A drop in session will be held at the reserve on Monday 3 June from 4pm to 5pm. Council staff will be on the pathway at the southern end of Pauline Way.
People can also take a short survey at www.engagingmitchellshire.com. Input closes 7 June.
