Rejuvenating our public spaces and facilities during COVID-19

By Mikaela Fowler

While a majority of the world was put on hold in recent months, Council has still operated as an essential service, providing the services our community needs even more so during these difficult times. It is great to see that Council has taken this time to continue to improve the facilities available, which we are sure we all took a little bit for granted before the pandemic.

Local sports clubs such as Skye Football Netball Club Carrum Downs Cricket Club and Carrum Downs Cricket Club, will return to a newly-refurbished pavilion. The internal alterations at Len Phelps Pavilion, Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve were also completed, with the Victorian Government providing $350,000 towards the project and Council investing $260,000. The works included female friendly change room and toilets, a first aid room and improved umpire facilities.

Council has continued to service, create and build to support our local community and economy wherever possible throughout the pandemic. While this year’s budget process was surely not an easy one, it’s pleasing that they have been able to include funding for our valuable outdoor areas. Council has allocated $7.54 million ($4.04 million Council contribution) to parks, open space and streetscapes, including replacing street lights with LED lighting,

Evelyn Park Open Space, Kananook Creek Arboretum, shade sails, public art and fencing. After the last few months we certainly all appreciate these spaces more than ever. We are lucky to be surrounded by great beaches, creek trails and wetlands.

Being outside and active is so beneficial for our physical and mental health and the last few months have proven that. We would encourage you even in these cooler months to get outside and enjoy our amazing surroundings (subject to the current lock down and social distancing rules of course)
