Wareena Park Master Plan
Community members can help shape the future of Wareena Park.
The Rural City of Wangaratta is developing a Wareena Park Master Plan, which will guide developments at the huge parcel of land in the heart of Wangaratta.
Wareena Park includes the oval, Ed Tippett Pavilion (Wareena Hall), change rooms, Wareena Bowls Club, Coronation Kindergarten, the Olympic Pool site, RV Dump point and the pool car park.
The impending closure of the Olympic Pool when the new outdoor 50m pool is constructed at the HP Barr Reserve, and the ageing sporting facilities at the oval mean there is a need to develop a master plan for Wareena Park.
Rural City of Wangaratta Director Community Wellbeing Jaime Chubb said Wareena Park was one of the most active precincts in Wangaratta, and it was time to look at how the community would like to use it into the future.
“So many great memories have been made at Wareena Park because of the great community, sporting and recreation facilities that were built up to 70 years ago,” she said.
“Now it’s time to put a plan in place to guide future developments.
“We want our community to be central to this master plan, so we’re asking people to fill in an online survey or attend one of three consultation sessions at the Ed Tippett Pavilion.
“This is a really exciting opportunity and we welcome any ideas for Wareena Park.”
The Master Plan will be developed over the next 12 months and will include multiple rounds of community consultation.
The online survey is open until Friday 20 September and can be accessed through
The three consultation sessions will be held at Ed Tippett Pavilion on the following dates:
- Thursday, 12 September 10am - 12 noon
- Thursday, 12 September 4pm - 6pm
- Saturday, 14 September 9am - 11am
