More playground equipment, outdoor gym equipment, new park furniture, and a large outdoor shelter are all being installed at Selwyn Park in Albion.
Mayor of Brimbank, Cr John Hedditch said the latest upgrade works at the popular park were in line with the Selwyn Park Master Plan adopted in 2012.
“This latest upgrade to Selwyn Park includes additional playground equipment, new park furniture and a large outdoor shelter.
“We will also be installing outdoor gym equipment at three points along the concrete circuit path that was constructed late last year.
“In addition, we’ll be planting about 130 semi-mature trees around the park,” Cr Hedditch said.
The new play equipment includes a play combination structure to allow for climbing, a tower with 2.8m high slide and an arch bridge.
The total cost of the current works is $400,000.
The works add to the play equipment, sand pit, drinking fountain, landscape planting, public barbecue, shelter and seating installed at Selwyn Park in 2012.
Selwyn Park is set on four hectares of parkland sloping down to Kororoit Creek. The area includes well-patronised sporting and community facilities, including Albion House EcoLiving Centre.
To date Brimbank City Council has upgraded 93 parks and spent $23 million transforming the local park network guided by the Creating Better Parks Policy and Plan which was first adopted in 2008 and updated in 2016.
Selwyn Park is located at 61A Selwyn Street, Albion.
