Cundy Park under the spotlight

MYRTLEFORD’S Cundy Park is set to become safer and more user-friendly with the addition of shade sails and lighting.

Alpine Shire Council has secured $50,000 from the State Government to install lighting to key activity areas across the Shire, including Cundy Park, Howitt Park in Bright and Mount Beauty’s Centennial Park.

The funds have been provided through the Safer Streets Program administered by the Department of Justice

A further $40,000 has been provided through the Cancer Councils Sun Safe program to construct shade sails at Cundy Park.

Council’s Acting Manager Project Delivery Simon Jones said the additions would enhance the space and make it more user-friendly for families.

“The community has always rallied behind Cundy Park and worked hard to raise funds to build the adventure playground,” he said.

“Last year a new toilet block was installed and the redevelopment of the Myrtleford Skate Park is underway.

“With the addition of shade and lighting, Cundy Park will become an even more flexible and enjoyable space for locals and visitors alike.”

Council is currently reviewing the design of the shade sails and the location of the proposed lighting. It is anticipated these new additions will be installed early in 2015.
