The community will play an important role in shaping Glenthorne National Park’s future.
There will be many opportunities from early 2019 where you can help guide future activities and facilities for the park, and give feedback on park plans shaped by local community input.
What we’ve already heard
The local community have been involved in planning for the area over many years, and based on what they’ve said, the new national park is expected to include picnic areas, campgrounds, walking, cycling and horse trails, 200 hectares of native vegetation, heritage buildings and a heritage trail, a nature play space and a wildlife rescue and recovery facility. Other opportunities that have been discussed by the community include a community farm, community gardens and a natural burial ground.
The site already includes a pistol club, archery club, model aircraft club, driving range and a major Riding for the Disabled facility in O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park.
