Works behind the Victoria Park Lake, on Tom Collins Drive, are continuing as stage two of the walking track is being finalised. The walking track will link up with the Victoria Park Lake loop once complete.

As part of the works, mulching and planting of approximately 24,000 native plants has commenced and will continue over the coming months. Next month 40 native trees will also be planted which includes 20 river red gums and 20 grey box.

Currently underway is the construction of a gravel carpark that will accommodate approximately eight vehicles. An additional shelter and picnic table will also be installed in July.

More works will also be carried out which include additional car parking, a roundabout and design of the boat sheds frontage.W
