A Parklands Masterplan is currently under development.
Community consultation was held in October 2019. The Rural City of Wangaratta are currently developing a Masterplan for the Wangaratta Parklands Precinct (Parklands Precinct). This important and strategic precinct comprises the Wangaratta Showgrounds (including the Norm Minns Oval), the WJ Findlay Oval and HP Barr Reserve.
The Parklands Masterplan will ensure that the future sport, recreation and community needs of the precinct are identified and planned for in an integrated manner.
In 2015, Council endorsed the Wangaratta Aquatic Plan for the Future and the Strategic Preliminary Plan for the Wangaratta Showgrounds. Both of these plans will assist to inform the proposed development of the Parklands Masterplan.
This is an exciting time for the community to get involved in the future planning of such a significant space within Wangaratta and the broader region, particularly as the construction of the outdoor 50m pool and indoor hydrotherapy pool is now well underway, with completion expected in November 2020.
