Become a friend of Grantville Park
Expressions of Interest are being sought from community members to establish a Friends of Grantville and District Memorial Park group. The community committee responsible for maintaining the Park dissolved in 2015.
The Park is now managed by Bass Coast Shire Council, providing an important open space for the Grantville community.
A new Friends of Grantville and District Memorial Park group is being established to ensure the thoughts of the community for the Park are being shared with Council.
Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari commented that a less formal group will provide an important link between the community and Council with lower demands on volunteers.
“We understand the demands of being part of a committee can be high, so establishing a friends group for the Park is a positive way of balancing the needs of the community within their volunteer capacity,” Cr Tessari said.
“Should there be enough community interest, a group will be formed after the EOI process.”
The Park contains a war memorial, playspace, exercise equipment, history telling signage, barbecues, public art and public toilets. It is also home to the Grantville Memorial Wall Mural Project.
The Friends of Bass RSL, with lead artist Janice Orchard, have been working on the Mural Project since September 2018. The incredible artwork, which involves many local volunteers, is commemorating the involvement of Australian Armed Forces in World War 1 and the Centenary of Armistice Day. Installation is well underway, with the completion of the Project planned for mid-April 2019.
