Residents in Werribee and surrounds will have access to the reactivated former Glen Devon Primary School site, thanks to a funding boost from the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Werribee Tim Pallas today joined Wyndham City Council and the local community to turn the first sod for the Glen Devon Park.

The $870,000 project will revitalise the former primary school site into a two hectare publicly accessible open parkland.

The project will clean up the vacant site and see the creation of open space for recreational activities. The new park will have walking pathways, drinking fountains, seats and nature-spaces for children to explore.

The Glen Devon Park will be funded by a $870,000 contribution from the Andrews Labor Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund, established to help deliver new facilities or necessary upgrades to improve liveability.

Wyndham City Council is delivering the new park and maintaining the land through a lease arrangement with the Victorian Government.

Works at the former school site are expected to be completed by April 2020.

The Growing Suburbs Fund has invested more than $18 million into the Wyndham City Council area for community infrastructure projects.
