City to develop master plans for Golden Square Recreation Reserve
The City of Greater Bendigo is developing two master plans for the Golden Square Recreation Reserve in Wade Street and is encouraging residents to get involved in the project by filling out an online survey or by making a submission to the City of Greater Bendigo by Wednesday November 21.
City of Greater Bendigo Active and Healthy Lifestyles Manager Lincoln Fitzgerald said the master plan project will explore the current and future demand for sport and recreation facilities at the reserve and provide an opportunity for the community to have their say on its future.
“The reserve features a major pavilion, oval, netball court, competition standard lighting, fencing, swimming pool and associated buildings, car parking and cricket nets and is home to both junior and senior football, netball and cricket,” Mr Fitzgerald said.
“While the reserve is located on crown land and the City is the Committee of Management the master plan project will also involve working with the adjacent privately owned Bowling and Croquet Club to ensure that we take the opportunity to consider the broader recreation needs of the Golden Square community with this piece of work.
“The development of the two master plans is important because it will provide a clear direction to Council on the development options for the reserve regardless of Council’s decision on the future of the Golden Square Swimming Pool in 2020.
“I encourage interested residents to have their say on the reserve by either filling out the online survey or by making a submission complete with their ideas for the reserve.”
