A new park for the East – what do you think?
A new park for Ballarat, comprising the Canadian State Forest and the adjoining former plantation land, is being created in fulfilment of the Victorian Government’s 2014 election commitment.
A community consultation process to discuss how the park could be used and the type of activities to be included within the park, has been developed by DELWP, in collaboration with the Friends of the Canadian Corridor, Wadawurrung Corporation and partner agencies, City of Ballarat, CFA and Parks Victoria.
Please be part of this consultation.DELWP is hosting a community event for residents, user groups and interested members of the public to give people a chance to speak with agency staff and interest groups, offer views and ask questions.
The community is invited to drop in during the following hours:
When: Friday 17 April 2015, 3.30pm?7pm
Saturday 18 April 2015, 11am?4pm
