Yarra Ranges Council is looking for feedback from the community on how they use public spaces such as Elizabeth Bridge Reserve in Kilsyth, Kilsyth Recreation Reserve and Kiloran Park in Mooroolbark.

Online surveys have been created on Council’s website and will remain open until Sunday 24 November for the community to say how they currently use the popular recreation spaces, and how they think the sites could be developed into the future.

Walling Ward Councillor, Len Cox, said that having the community’s input into projects like these are vital, and would help Council formulate a final master plan for future developments to take place at the sites.

“To get the best possible outcome for these spaces we rely heavily on the feedback and thoughts from the community members that use them,” said Cr Cox.

“I encourage anyone who uses any of these parks, in any capacity, to take our short survey as every piece of information that we get helps us with the planning and development of our public spaces.”

The projects fall under Council’s Live.Move.Yarra Ranges program, which is designed to help create a healthier, happier and more active community.

The program also ensures that the natural environment and maintained community spaces are linked, inspiring, vibrant, fun and energising.

Yarra Ranges Council is undertaking extensive evidence based planning and community engagement to ensure that Live.Move.Yarra Ranges projects have a positive impact on the community over the coming years.

In addition to the three public space projects, Council’s Paths and Trails Strategy remains open for feedback until 18 November.

The community is invited to share how they currently use the paths and trails in the Yarra Ranges, how they’d like to use them in the future, and what improvements could be made.
