Project update

A number of recreation projects are taking shape across the Shire – from Bannockburn to Smythesdale and lots of townships in between.

Council’s Recreation team is committed to working with communities to develop recreation spaces and create opportunities that make a difference.

We have provided residents with an update on current recreation projects (see below).  Council will continue to apply for funding so that more and more projects can be developed and delivered – projects that help improve community wellbeing and increase residents’ access to physical activity opportunities.
