Head to the Harcourt Twilight Market to see the new plans for a play space at Stanley Park North.

Monday 18 February 2019

Children, families and friends of Harcourt will be able to have a sneak peek at the initial plans for a new play space at Stanley Park North at the upcoming Harcourt Twilight Market.

A community group – made up of parents, grandparents, representatives of local organisations and Council staff – has been busy working with local play space designers to create an area that will be enjoyed for years to come.

“We know how important the play space is to the local community, and the group has worked hard on developing the plan,” said Ben Grounds, Manager Community Places and Spaces, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“We’ve spoken to the experts in play – that is, the students from Harcourt Valley Primary School – who voted on their favourite pieces of play equipment,” said Mr Grounds.

“Now it’s time for the community to take a look and share their feedback on the space.”

The working group and designers will host a stall featuring the proposed designs at the Harcourt Twilight Markets at James Park from 4.00pm to 8.00pm on Saturday 23 February.

For those who can’t make it to the market the plans will be available at on Council’s website and at key community hubs the following week.

“From Monday 25 February you’ll be able to see the plans on display at the Goldfields Track Café, Harcourt Primary School and Harcourt Preschool,” said Mr Grounds.

The plans will also be available on Council’s website at www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/HaveYourSay.

Feedback on the plans will close at 5.00pm, Monday 18 March.

Feedback may be sent via email to info@mountalexander.vic.gov.au or via post to Mount Alexander Shire Council, PO Box 185, Castlemaine 3450 VIC. You can also discuss your ideas with a member of the Community Spaces and Places Team on 5471 1700.
