|Gannawarra Shire Council has undertaken works to makeover Water Tower Park, popularly known as “Egg” Park, located in Kerang.
Mayor Lorraine Learmonth said the upgrade to the park has been funded by Council and includes a selection of new brightly coloured, interactive play equipment.
“The new look park includes play pieces such as a flying fox, climbing wall, slide, basket swing, rocker and of course – an egg,” said Mayor Learmonth.
“Egg Park was re-opened to the public on Friday afternoon and it has been wonderful to see all the local children enjoying the park over the weekend and after school.”
The park aligns with Gannawarra Shire Council’s 2017-2021 Council Plan’s key focus area ‘Strong Healthy Communities’ where one of the strategies is to provide a range of opportunities that promote active and healthy lifestyles and social connectedness.
“In a modern world full of advancing technology, it is important children have access to outdoor play equipment and are encouraged to spend time outdoors,” said Mayor Learmonth.
“Playgrounds offer important opportunities for children to develop social skills, and contribute to their overall physical and mental wellbeing.”
“Council looks forward to upgrading more playgrounds across the shire in the future,” Mayor Learmonth added.
Water Tower “Egg” Park is located on the corner of Vaughan and Nolan Streets Kerang.
