Two parks in St Albans and West Sunshine are ready for play following recent improvements to playgrounds, picnic areas, pathways, and tree plantings.
“The designs of both these parks responded directly to feedback we received from the community and residents who regularly use this space.
“As a Community-first Council, we highly value the ideas and suggestions that have helped to make these fantastic parks.
