Bass Coast Shire Council is seeking feedback on the concept plan to upgrade the much loved Wonthaggi Guide Park.

The project aims to develop an accessible, intergenerational space that offers a variety of challenging experiences while also providing natural shade and park amenities for residents and visitors.

The community are encouraged to consider the plan and provide feedback. The plan is on display at the Wonthaggi Guide Park, and also online on Council’s website at www.basscoast.vic.gov.au/guidepark

Feedback will be collected via online and hard copy surveys, and at pop-up sessions held on site at the Guide Park on

- Tuesday, 29 January from 10.30am to 11.30am

- Tuesday, 5 February from 4.00pm to 5.00pm

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, commented that Guide Park was identified for an upgrade in the 2017 Bass Coast Playspace Strategy, with the current playspace installed in 2005.

 “This is a major project, it’s estimated the cost for the implementation will be in the order of $1 million,” Cr Tessari said.

“We are developing the plan this year in order to apply for funding in the following financial years.”

“Just like any big project, it important that we get the plans right at the beginning, to ensure we end up with a playspace which can be used and enjoyed by everyone in the community for many years to come.”

The plan includes a large mine themed slide structure, sand play, an accessible carousel and exercise equipment for older adults.

The plan is on exhibition until 10 February and seeking input from the community. For more information or to view the Plan and provide your feedback head to www.basscoast.vic.gov.au/guidepark
