In 2006 The Shire of Lake Grace successfully secured funding from the Department of Sport and Recreation (under the 2005 Trails programme) and the Premier’s Physical Activity Taskforce for the development of a Trails Master plan for the Shire.
The Shire of Lake Grace is now investigating the opportunity of advancing this Master plan and is seeking community consultation to gauge if the Community is supportive of the Council identifying and prioritising potential trails. If the community are seen to be supportive and identify the priority projects then council staff will seek detailed costs and identify and speak to potential funding bodies
Four trails (or sets of trails) were identified in 2006 as priority projects:
1. The Lake Grace town walk circuits
2. The Newdegate walk circuits
3. The Rifle Range Wildflower walk
4. White Dam bushland discovery trail.
In order to assist Council in understanding the communities priorities for this project , the Shire is asking you to identify the order of your priority for the walk circuits and trails. A form can be found at the back of the Community Fact Sheet No 1.
More information can be found in the Community Fact Sheet No 1 - November 2014. Copies of the fact sheet has recently been posted. If you have not received a copy it can be viewed by clicking below.
After receiving feedback from the community in relation to the suitability of the local playgrounds, research was done on appropriate equipment for various age groups and opportunities that can be created locally to make a playground unique to Lake Grace.
A well-planned and well-designed playground has the potential to become well-used and a highly valued community asset.
At the November 2013 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council endorsed Shire staff to proceed with identifying funding sources, design, site analysis and community consultation for an All Ages Playground in Lake Grace.
