Project Progress Updates
3rd June 2022 - The base was excavated and the concrete bases for the central circle were prepared.
Funding for the $120,000 construction of the paths and the central circle is being provided by Baw Baw Shire Council and the Rotary Club of Warragul, with Council supplying approximately 80% of the project costs and the Rotary Club contributing the remaining 20% and also managing procurement and contractors.
Stage one works are expected to be completed by early July, with community engagement and fund raising for subsequent stages to follow. Subsequent stages plan to include the installation of totems in the central circle, plant borders to the paths, and seating.
Friday 21 October - The Rotary Club of Warragul held a barbeque at Rotary Park to celebrate the receipt of $17,000 from the Planting Trees for the Queen’s Jubilee fund that will be used to plant the northwest corner as a woodland area.
