All set for $500k upgrades at Cheltenham Park

28 January 2015

A $500,000 program to upgrades at Cheltenham Park is set to commence in March 2015 with Council awarding the contract for the works at its 27 January meeting.

The planned works include the renewal of the existing gravel carpark, new paths around the oval and landscaping improvements.

Bayside City Council Mayor, Cr Felicity Frederico said that the upgrade forms part of Council’s larger program of works to improve and maintain open spaces in the municipality.

“Cheltenham Park is a much loved community facility” Cr Fredrico said.

“Residents in Bayside are enthusiastic users of our community’s sporting facilities and open spaces,

“These improvements will make it easier for visitors to move through and enjoy the park, particularly for families with strollers.”

The works are one of a series of recommendations made through the Cheltenham Park Master Plan.

“Council’s master planning process has enabled us to work with the community to ensure that our open spaces meet their needs,” Cr Frederico said.

“Council is committed to ensuring that our open spaces are easily accessible and in good working order, well designed and highly functional.

“The upgrades at Cheltenham Park are the first in Council’s busy 2015 capital works schedule which will see the implementation of master plans for other areas including Dendy Park, Dendy Beach, Hurlingham and Banksia Reserve.”

The works at Cheltenham Park are expected to commence in March 2015 and are expected to take 3 months to complete.
