Gordon Gardens Master Plan project

In September, 2019 Council adopted the Gordon Gardens Master Plan.

A number of projects that were identified as part of the Gordon Gardens Master Plan were constructed at the precinct during 2019/2020 including a basketball court, bicycle/scooter pump track, outdoor fitness equipment/ shade structure and a touch-free water fountain.

The next stage of the Master Plan work will commence in April, 2021 and includes:

  • Development of the vacant block beside the Senior Citizens building into a carpark, including two disabled parking spots
  • Extension of the ramps into the Senior Citizens building
  • Walking path from the carpark to the Queen Victoria Jubilee Monument within Gordon Gardens
  • New path and new pedestrian gate into the Bowls Club from the carpark
  • New sliding gate at the Bowls Club to allow access to the Bowls Club sheds
  • Relocation of the Bowls Club’s water tanks

The works will be delivered by Council’s Operations team and will begin next week. The project will take approximately four weeks to complete.

More information, including a copy of the Gordon Gardens Master Plan, is available to view at www.centralgoldfields.vic.gov.au/gordongardens

Derby Road enhancement project

We’re planning to beautify the medium strip along Derby Road, Maryborough – between Lean Street (Goldfields Reservoir) and Carramar Nursery.

As one of Maryborough’s main entry points, the project will make this precinct more visually pleasing to visitors and complement the median strip located at the High Street end of Derby Road.

The project involves the planting of 30 Japanese Elm trees, with Tuscan stone filling the space between the trees.

Irrigation will also be installed as part of the project.

The project, funded as part of the Council’s 2020/21 Budget, will take around two weeks to complete and is expected to be carried out in May.

Residents wanting more information about the project can visit www.centralgoldfields.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay or contact Council’s Manager Operations Amber Robinson on 5461 6702 or email amber.robinson@cgoldshire.vic.gov.au
