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.

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.
The Pump Track opened in early September 2020
