City of Whittlesea residents are invited to share their ideas and feedback for a new adventure park and playground, set to be built in the Quarry Hills Regional Parkland in South Morang.
Granite Hills Park will transform the open space into an impressive community hub with play equipment, open-air pavilion with public barbecues and picnic settings, lawn maze, nature and water play, public toilets with a Changing Places facility and connected walking trails.
The park will be one of four major community parks in the City of Whittlesea, providing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the co-designed play features and explore the picturesque natural landscape.
City of Whittlesea Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said the construction of Granite Hills Park is a significant step in activating Quarry Hills Regional Parkland, providing residents and visitors the chance to experience the expansive nature reserve.
“Granite Hills Park will breathe new life into the precinct and offer the perfect setting for friends and neighbours to gather together and enjoy the wonderful surrounds of Quarry Hills Regional Parkland,” Ms Wilson said.
“We encourage residents to share their feedback on Council’s concept design and help shape the future of Granite Hills Park.”
Residents can have their say about the park’s proposed design by completing an online survey by 15 August 2021 or attending one of the pop-up sessions in South Morang and Mernda in July. For dates and locations or to submit a survey, visit engage.whittlesea.vic.gov.au/granite-hills
Granite Hills Park will be built in stages, starting in 2022.
The project will be delivered by the City of Whittlesea with the support of the Victorian Government.
