Council is pleased to present the detailed design for the Alexandra Rotary Park and Visitor Activity Precinct (previously known as the Alexandra Youth Precinct or Alexandra Rotary Park Play Space).

Following community consultation in 2018 and 2019 on a draft Masterplan to link Hec Ingram Reserve and the Rotary Park playground together as one precinct, Council applied to the Victorian Government for grant funding to help us deliver the Project for the Alexandra community.

Council is pleased to announce that the Victorian Government has granted $1.05 million in funding for the Project, which will see the development of a pump track in Hec Ingram Reserve, a play space in Rotary Park and aesthetic improvements to the area, including the open grassed and landscaped areas. With Council's contribution of $500,000 this brings the projects total value to $1.55 million.

Council’s Red Gate Ward Councillor Damien Gallagher said the project aims to deliver a facility of regional significance and he thanked the Victorian Government for its generous funding support.

‘Rotary Park is an important recreational hub for the Alexandra community, especially young people. It is also a fantastic spot for visitors to stop in and relax, including those with young children. Thanks to everyone who contributed their ideas and feedback on the Masterplan. We look forward to the design for the precinct serving the community well in coming years.

‘The funding we’ve received from the Victorian Government will help us create an attractive and functional space. With the Park only a short walk from the main shopping precinct in Alexandra, it’s perfectly positioned to encourage people of all ages to get active and spend time in the area. The pump track and skate park will also provide a valuable social space for young people in Alexandra.

‘Council is currently inviting suitably-qualified contractors to submit a tender bid for the construction of the Project. Once a successful contractor is appointed, construction will commence early next year.
