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.Read more
