Hamilton Park Reserve – Community Consultation

As many of you already know, the State Government has delivered funding in the amount of $180,000 to the City of Marion to construct a new automated toilet block at Hamilton Avenue Reserve. 

I am sure you will all agree that this will be a great addition to the Reserve, allowing more people and families in the community an opportunity to enjoy nature in their own backyard.  It has also prompted the City of Marion to look at redeveloping this wonderful open space and I urge everyone get along to the Community Consultation being held at the Reserve this Sunday, 2 December 2018 from 4 - 5pm.

Alternatively, if you can’t make it and would like to share your thoughts and ideas on what should happen on the Reserve, head to www.makingmarion.com.au/hamilton-park-reserve.

Who are our Crafty Locals?

I’ve had another busy month visiting many schools and congratulating countless members of our community. One of the best things I love about my job is the people I get to meet, and admire what they do within our area. Art has been popping up everywhere recently, with the opening of the Seaview High School Art Exhibition and our Gibson local, Dianne Schroeder, creating her Poppy artwork along the Jetty at Brighton Beach.

Changes to Pedestrian Access and Supporting our Local Businesses

The October Long Weekend may have given people the opportunity to get away for the weekend, but for those working on the Oaklands Crossing Project, it was all steam ahead.  It was an exciting milestone to see traffic flow over the new Morphett Road Bridge and getting a glimpse at the impressive pedestrian and cyclist bridge when it arrived on site.
