Parks & Sports Grounds
Council provides a wide range of services and amenities within the Region's parks and reserves. These include:
- sports grounds
- passive and recreational reserves
- conservation and amenity reserves
- public toilets
Council actively promotes and continues to develop these facilities as it believes they are beneficial to the well being of the community.
Council has finalised the development of a Master Plan of sporting facilities within the region. There is a need to ensure that all the sporting and recreational users are adequately catered for in their needs, that existing facilities are used efficiently and effectively and that there is minimal duplication, especially within the major towns.
Mid-Western Regional Council maintains 55 parks, gardens and oval / playing field areas, 64 separate sections of road reserves and other reserves, and 11 cemeteries (8 rural, 3 town). This equates to 6,164 m2 of garden beds and approximately 245.39ha of turfed or general mowing area.
Council provides safe parks, playground areas, sports fields and reserves that meet the needs of residents and visitors to the region whilst ensuring that they are free from hazards.
