Works to transform a park at the heart of the Werribee City Centre into a state-of-the-art recreation and events space will begin later this month.
Pedestrian access through Wyndham Park, located to the north of Watton Street on the banks of the Werribee River, is no longer be possible, as fences go up and works commence.
Access to Comben Drive from Cottrell Street will still be accessible by pedestrians, but bicycles and prams won’t be able to get through as the loop ramp will be closed.
A viewing area will be established at the bridge at the Wedge Street Piazza, so those interested can still take in the views and check out how works are progressing.
Wyndham City Mayor Cr Mia Shaw thanked residents for their understanding while the park is under construction.
“This $13 million Wyndham City project is one that we’re all excited for,” Cr Shaw said.
“Once complete, it will feature a large events lawn, a huge playground, seating, rest areas, toilets, barbecues, shelters, new pathways, improvements to cycling access, viewing areas, improved lighting and much more.”
“We’re opening up the views of this park so our residents and visitors can really make the most of this beautiful asset.”
“But in order to get this work done as soon as possible, it’s important that the park is closed in its entirety while construction is underway.”
Cr Shaw acknowledged a $3.2 million grant from the State Government through its Growing Suburbs Fund.
