TWO local park projects will be completed after receiving a funding boost from the state government. A new pocket park will be created in Moorabbin, and the off-leash dog area at Carrum’s Roy Dore Reserve will be expanded with the funding. Just under $1 million was awarded to council from the state government through the local parks program. The land in Moorabbin was purchased by council in 2019. The mayor Georgina Oxley said “social isolation has reminded us all how important open green space is for our health and wellbeing so it’s fantastic to receive the news we can push ahead with the development of a

new pocket park for the Moorabbin community and the Roy Dore Reserve off-leash dog park.” “Council has been investing heavily in recent years to improve our parks and open spaces across Kingston and we now have some fantastic parks, playgrounds, outdoor exercise centres and other facilities for the community to enjoy, plus more on the way,” she said. Around the municipality, playgrounds in Dingley Village, Edithvale, Mordialloc, Aspendale Gardens, Clayton South, and Chelsea Heights are also set to receive upgrades. A new exercise area was recently opened at Barker Street Park in Cheltenham.

FRANKSTON City Council has drafted an Arts and Culture Strategic Plan for the next four years and is now seeking community feedback on the plan to continue to foster the local community’s vibrant and active participation in literature and the arts. Now is the time to have your say about artistic programs, events and opportunities within Frankston City over the coming years. Frankston currently has a population of approximately 140,000 people, which is expected to increase to 160,000 by 2050. As the region evolves over the next 10 years and becomes more of a destination for businesses, new residents and cultural tourists, Council is committed to innovate and offer fresh and contemporary art and culture experiences that are inclusive, respectful to all community groups and our environment. During the life of the previous Arts and Culture strategy, Council upgraded Frankston

Arts Centre and its infrastructure; built on its sculpture and eclectic street art collection; and promoted the city’s reputation as an arts, festival and events destination. Incorporating Frankston Libraries, Frankston Major Events, Frankston Arts Centre and Council’s public art programs and commissions, the strategy aims to strengthen our community through learning, new experiences and engaging arts programs. If you have ideas for how to promote the city’s reputation as an arts, festival and events destination, Council wants to hear from you. To complete the online survey, visit thefac. before Friday 17 July, 5pm. To request a hard copy of the survey via post, contact Frankston Arts Centre on 9784 1060. Everyone who completes the survey will go in a draw to win one of three $100 vouchers for Frankston Arts Centre.
