Maryborough’s Princes Park to be revitalised11/05/2016
The Central Goldfields community of Maryborough is set to enjoy new and improved facilities at Princes Park through a funding boost from the State Government.
The park – which features a sporting oval, running track and community spaces – plays host to a range of local events, including the popular RACV Energy Breakthrough event which attracts over 12,000 participants and visitors to the region each year.
The Government is contributing $366,666 toward the $500,000 Princes Park Enhancement project which will attract more tourists and events to the region and create an attractive, modern sporting and recreation facility for the entire local community to enjoy.
The upgrades will include:
- extension of the Energy Breakthrough track to allow participants in the event to better showcase their innovative designs
- extension of the recycled water system that supplies the community spaces, reducing reliance on portable water – ensuring continued access to the facility in times of drought
- improvements to the community spaces including landscaping, seating and shelters to ensure Princes Park remains a contemporary venue for both residents and visitors
The project will be delivered by the Central Goldfields Shire Council in close consultation with the local community.
