Mitchell Avenue Reserve Projects
Mitchell Avenue Reserve spans along Mitchell Avenue, from Cribbes Road to White Street. It is home to Wangaratta’s Splash Park and also features a children’s playground, flying fox, multipurpose sports courts and public amenities. In addition, a new bike Pump Track will start construction on the 8th of June. Final stages to the design of a Children's Garden are also now underway.
Council is constructing a Children’s Garden at the Mitchell Avenue Reserve, Wangaratta.
The project was been identified by the community through prior engagement undertaken as part of the Mitchell Avenue Reserve Master Plan development. Following endorsement of the Master Plan, the community identified a children’s garden as one of the highest priorities.
The project will deliver a Children’s Garden with several key elements as identified by the community, including:
• Sensory experiences
• Natural elements sympathetic to the existing vegetation and creek
• Unique artistic elements
• Island feels
• Ability to play / hide within the gardens
The project is set to commence in late July and be completed in approximately 14 weeks.

Pump Track Update
The Rural City of Wangaratta is constructing a bike Pump Track at Mitchell Avenue Reserve, within the former Yarrunga Pool Site.
The project has been identified by the community as part of the Mitchell Avenue Reserve Master Plan and increasing community interest for bike tracks within Wangaratta.
The pump track has been designed to challenge the most experience riders, whilst supporting beginner and intermediate riders to learn from each other in a safe space.
Works started on the 9th of June 2020. The first week saw the completion of site establishment activities, which included mobilisation of a site office, installation of safety signage and work site delineation, location and pick up of existing services and survey set-out of the Pump Track site.
This week will see the mobilisation of some larger plant items (specifically an 8T excavator), stripping of topsoil materials from the Pump Track Site and the installation of the drainage system that will form part of the completed infrastructure.
We expect completition, weather permitting, to be complete by mid August.
