Works are set to start soon on the much-anticipated rejuvenation of the Woolenook Reserve located on the corner of Woolenook Way and Ryans Road in Coongulla.
The reserve has been identified as an area needing improvements in its presentation, function and maintenance as part of the Wellington Shire Open Space Plan 2014-2024.
Wellington Shire Council General Manager Built and Natural Environment Chris Hastie says: “Council is delighted to be commencing works soon at the Woolenook Reserve. The Coongulla community identified the reserve as needing improvements in 2014 and Council are now able to undertake these works and enhance this open space.
“Members of the local community have also provided feedback on the proposed concept plan for the reserve works. The final plan will be made available to the community and works will begin in full in the near future.”
The proposed works include the installation of bollards to delineate the reserve from the surrounds and prevent unauthorised vehicle access, planting of indigenous plants to increase biodiversity values and improvements to the internal pedestrian pathways.
The cost of the project is $30,000 and is expected to be completed by July 2017.
