Summary

There’s now even more reason to visit the newly improved Green Gully Reserve in Keilor Downs with a new playground and fitness facilities installed as part of the $800,000 upgrade.

Brimbank Mayor, Cr Lucinda Congreve invites the local community to come celebrate the new facilities at the popular park on Saturday 21 September, from 11am-1pm.

“Our latest upgrade at Green Gully Reserve has made it even better, with heaps more to enjoy.

“Come along to the official opening of the upgraded park on 21 September, and enjoy a sausage sizzle, family friendly entertainment as well as an exciting live animal show, all at no charge.

“The upgrade has put in a fantastic new playground, with a landmark tower and slides. There’s also a new swing set, balancing and climbing posts, nature play areas, a picnic area, native bird sculptures, and new toilets, as well as several tree plantings and garden beds. There are also new fitness stations and a combined basketball and netball court.

“The improvements are part of the works guided by Council’s award-winning Creating Better Parks Policy and Plan. This is all about making sure we have high quality parks, playgrounds and open spaces across Brimbank.
