BETTER RECREATIONAL SPACE FOR MELBOURNE’S OUTER WEST

Member for Western Metro region Cesar Melhem MP today announced the beginning of works on the upgrade of Kenswick Drive Reserve in Hillside, thanks to a $194,000 grant from the Andrews Labor Government.

The revamp of Kenswick Drive Reserve will support recreational activities in a social setting, including an exercise station, a shelter, seating, a playground, new trees and landscaping works.

The project will create a vibrant and welcoming environment for locals and visitors to this rapidly growing area.

The project was funded through the Growing Suburbs Fund (GSF), with Melton City Council having received $10.7 million from the GSF over two years.

Mr Melhem said the redevelopment was vital to the reserve’s future capacity to facilitate a range of recreational options in one of Melbourne’s fastest growing areas.

Melton City Council contributed $193,000 toward the $387,000 project.

The Growing Suburbs Fund supports councils to provide projects that improve connections, enhance services, and provide greater opportunities for local communities.
