McGregor Park has been transformed into the centrepiece of Trafalgar’s recreation precinct thanks to a major upgrade.
Officially reopening McGregor Park in Trafalgar today, Minister for Regional Development, Jaala Pulford, said the $400,000 project would deliver a significantly improved recreational experience for the local community.
McGregor Park hosts numerous sporting and community events that will all benefit from the extensive works.
A major priority of the project was restoring the park’s drainage system followed by the replacement of all the play equipment, seating, paths and fencing.
The park’s gardens were also redeveloped to increase safety, appeal and usage by Trafalgar residents and visitors to the area.
The project also constructed a new shelter, a barbecue facility and planted advanced trees, immediately benefitting those using the park.
The Victorian Government invested $300,000 in the project, with Baw Baw Shire Council contributing $100,000.
