Published on 14 September 2020


Families can experience the warmer weather at playgrounds across the Gannawarra following the easing of COVID-19 measures.

With the Gannawarra moving to the second step of the Victorian Roadmap to a COVID-normal society at 11.59pm on Sunday, 13 September, playgrounds and exercise equipment located throughout the municipality reopened earlier today.

“Council thanks the community for their efforts in adhering to the re-introduction of COVID-19 measures, which have been in place since early August,” Council Chief Executive Officer, Tom O’Reilly said.

“The reopening of playgrounds located in towns throughout the Gannawarra will provide enjoyment for children at this time, especially as the days become longer and warmer.”

Playgrounds and reserves throughout the Gannawarra will be a popular choice for residents to gather following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, with up to five people from a maximum of two households able to meet outdoors for social interaction.

“Council looks forward to welcoming people back to our reserves, which have been maintained by our dedicated staff throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr O’Reilly said.

“Unfortunately as part of current COVID-19 restrictions, skate parks will remain closed at this time, but we look forward to reopening these facilities at a later date.”
