Walkers, runners, skaters, bike and horse riders will soon be able to enjoy upgraded trail paths at two parks within the Shire, as part of Council’s commitment to improving safety.

Asphalt upgrade works are underway at Fergusons Paddock in Hurstbridge, and will start in coming weeks at Wingrove Park in Eltham.

Fergusons Paddock Trail is now closed for the upgrades between the Hurstbridge – Arthurs Creek Rd footbridge, and the Hurstbridge Pony Club, until Monday 12 June.

Another smaller path connecting Hurstbridge Skate Park to the main path is also closed for the duration of the works.

Surface works at Wingrove Trail in Eltham are expected to commence in mid-June and run for about two weeks.

The unsealed paths will be sealed with asphalt to create a smoother surface.  

Please see signage for temporary detours.
