North Beauty Park in­for­ma­tion wanted

Alpine Observer - - News -

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 or via let­ter to Alpine Shire Coun­cil, PO Box 139, Bright VIC 3741.
