A new basketball court is currently being installed at the Gordon Gardens in Dunolly, as part of the Healthy Heart of Victoria initiative.
One of the existing five tennis courts located in the Gordon Gardens is being converted into a new basketball court by Bendigo-based business B&T Pool Painting & Court Surfacing – with the court expected to be ready for play by Easter.
A new bicycle/scooter pump track, outdoor fitness equipment and share structure – all projects that were identified as part of the Gordon Gardens Master Plan – will also be installed at the Gordon Gardens in Dunolly as part of the initiative.
The $190,000 Gordon Gardens upgrade project will be delivered thanks to funding from Healthy Heart of Victoria.
Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said the new facilities at the Gordon Gardens will provide opportunities for free physical activity for children, young people and families of Dunolly as well as residents from surrounding communities.
“It’s an exciting time for the Dunolly community with a range of improvement works at the Gordon Gardens to be delivered by Council as a result of last year’s Gordon Gardens Master Plan project,” he said.
Funded by the State Government, the $5 million Healthy Heart of Victoria initiative aims to make residents living in Loddon Campaspe communities more active, more often.
