As part of the process to develop a Master Plan for Willow Park, the community overwhelmingly stated that they liked Willow Park essentially as it is with its bush-like areas. The community also made it clear that they would like to see these areas enhanced.
With that in mind, we successfully made application to the Victorian State Government through the North East Catchment Management Authority for a Second Generation Landcare Grant for funds to produce a landscape design for the Pearce Street entrance to Willow Park that will increase native biodiversity.
A Steering Committee was formed to oversee this project comprised of members of Friends of Willow Park and representatives from City of Wodonga and Wodonga TAFE.
We had two draft concept landscape designs by the end of April 2010 and made these available to our community for comment during a Play and Say Day on 1 May 2010.
