New recreational facilities will be built at Woodford’s Jubilee Park as part of a $566,000 transformation of the popular community space.

Premier Denis Napthine announced State Government funding of $374,000 for the project which will be combined with $190,000 from Warrnambool City Council and contributions from the community.

“The latest funding will provide better facilities to make this park an even more attractive meeting space which will be further complemented by a new playground and series of pathways and gardens,” Dr Napthine said.

“Importantly, the construction of a new footbridge will provide safer access for students linking from the park to Woodford Primary School, whose students regularly use the space for outdoor activities.

“The revitalisation of Jubilee Park is an ongoing collaborative effort between the Warrnambool City Council, Friends of Jubilee Park and Woodford Primary School with support from local community groups. I applaud everyone who has contributed to transforming this once-tired space into a picturesque parkland oasis for the wider community to enjoy.”

Warrnambooo Mayor Cr Michael Neoh acknowledged the support of the State Government and the commitment of the Woodford community to making their park a better space.

Concept plans for the playground have been developed using ideas from students at Woodford Primary School, which has a growing enrolment that reached 174 this year.

Warrnambool City Council will manage and implement the project in partnership with the Friends of Jubilee Park and Woodford Primary School.

Other groups involved include the Woodford Fire Brigade, Woodford Playgroup and Merri Kindergarten.

The upgrade to the park is expected to be completed by the middle of next year.
