Year

2017

An existing underutilized park in Spring Gully has been converted into a thriving community asset that is used for regular mountain bike races, birthday parties, community gatherings and by local walkers.

The site recently hosted a national series mountain bike race and demonstrates how a simple, highly considered, human scaled intervention can have a significant impact on how spaces are valued by a multiple of community groups. The project has been shortlisted for Park of the Year in the Parks and Leisure Australia 2018 Awards of Excellence for the Victoria and Tasmania region.
