The Hanson Reserve Master Plan has been refined following initial investigations in 2014. The Master Plan incorporates a playspace, car parking, shelters and bbqs, a recreation loop path and fitness stations. Consultation on the Master Plan was undertaken in July 2015, including a community ‘Park Day’. Council endorsed the Master Plan in October 2015.
Council was successful in gaining a grant under the Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program administered by the Office for Recreation and Sport (ORS). These funds are allocated towards the upgrade of the existing velodrome surface, new lighting and safety fencing as part of Stage 1 of the Hanson Reserve Upgrade. Stage 2 will follow and include improvements to the open space area surrounding the velodrome.
