A new nature playspace, more lighting and better paths are on the way for picturesque Wynn Vale Dam.

The upgrades are to be funded through a $1.1 million grant from the Department for Infrastructure and Transport.

The grant also covers new fencing, landscaping and water quality improvements.

Deputy Mayor Lucas Jones has welcomed the news. 

“This is exciting news for our community. These improvements will make Wynn Vale Dam an even better spot to go for a walk and enjoy nature.”

As the Council only recently received the grant, it’s too early to say the exact locations, timing and the extent of the works. However, it is likely that the majority of works will take place next financial year.

While the Council will not contribute financially to the project, it will provide in-kind support through planning, design and project management.  

The works will align with a stage 2 safety audit of the dam currently underway.

Wynn Vale Dam generates 120 megalitres of treated stormwater annually to irrigate Council parks and reserves. It is part of the Dry Creek Corridor and Jubilee Reserve.
