At its December 2018 meeting, Council endorsed the revised master plan, detailed design and costings for the Park. A business case and funding plan will now be developed for the staged delivery of Boongaree that identifies funding sources, including grant funding and community fundraising opportunities, over several budget cycles commencing 2018/19 for inclusion in Council’s long-term financial plan.

The latest version of the Boongaree District Park Master Plan was issued by Council in August 2018 –

 

BACKGROUND
The Park will be a core piece of infrastructure that will play a strategic role for both the town and visitors following completion of the Berry Bypass. Council is working with Berry Rotary to create a nature based play area within the Park.

An initial Master Plan, prepared by the District Park Review Group (DPRG), a joint initiative of the Forum and Council chaired by James Robinson and Clr Wells, was collaboratively developed by key stakeholders and users of the Park through a workshop process. The Berry Forum meeting on June 8 2017 endorsed the recommendation that the Master Plan be put to Council, where it was adopted.
