North Beauty Park information wanted
ALPINE Shire Council is calling for the Mount Beauty community to share how they use the North Mount Beauty Park.
Council’s Director Assets Will Jeremy said the playground equipment in the North Mount Beauty Park will be renewed as a portion of Council’s $75,000 playground renewal program.
“We want to know how people use the playground equipment, and what barriers may prevent them from using it,” he said.
“This park is quite close to the Foreshore playground, which is Mount Beauty’s key playground and recreation space.
“The equipment in North Mount Beauty Park is in need of replacement, so we have the perfect opportunity to ensure that whatever we do with the North Mount Beauty Playground meets any needs of the community that the foreshore park doesn’t currently meet.
“We don’t want to replicate what is currently at the foreshore, but complement and add to the facilities for kids of all ages.
Shire are considering two main ideas based around encouraging the playing of ball sports or a toddlers play area.
Mt Beauty resident Karen Crumpler said that she and her children enjoy the playground at North Mt Beauty, but there was room for some improvements.
A picnic table and equipment for older kids were among her suggestions.
Ideas can be sent to the Shire via its Facebook page, by emailing email@example.com or via letter to Alpine Shire Council, PO Box 139, Bright VIC 3741.
