The parks upgrade now features a new playground and nature play area, half-court basketball court with basketball and netball hoops, picnic facilities, a new walking path with shelter and seats, and beautiful landscaping throughout.
The Wyndham City Council Active City portfolio holder Peter Maynard said the upgrade has provided Hoppers Crossing residents with a great new place to walk, run and exercise, a fun space for kids of all ages, and more than enough of shade for the hotter summer months.
“The $660,000 Wyndham City upgrade has been jointly funded by the State Government via a $325,000 Growing Suburbs Fund grant,” Cr Maynard said.
“I would like the thank the State Government for their generous contribution and also thank the local residents who took the time to tell us what improvements and changes they wanted to see at the park during our community consultation phase.”
Cr Maynard said that the Golden Square Park upgrade was part of local Council’s strategy to address ageing infrastructure within several Wyndham parks and reserves as detailed in the Play Space Strategy and Open Space Strategy.
“We know how important it is for our residents to have access to open space, close to home,” Cr Maynard said.
“The Golden Square park upgrade has created a new and exciting space that the whole family can enjoy.”
