Member for Barker Tony Pasin has visited the Millicent Parklands to see the progress on the $950,000 Redevelopment project.

The development of the Domain precinct into a vibrant community open space has been planned by the Wattle Range Council as a major economic and social activation project linking established walking running and cycling trails and giving healthy lifestyle choices to a wide range of age groups.

Earlier this year the Wattle Range Council received $400,000 from the Federal Government’s Community Development Grants Program to get the project off the ground.

Mr Pasin said it was great to see the project taking shape.

“This is a significant project for the Millicent community and I’m pleased that the funding I secured from the Federal Government earlier this year has helped get it moving and see the plans become a reality.”

“The council has done a wonderful job in planning and now that we can see it taking shape on the ground I can see how it will really bring community together by creating a vibrant open space that the whole community can benefit from,” Mr Pasin said.

While the project is not expected to be fully completed until the new year, the council is hoping it will be open for use in the upcoming school holidays.
