On Sunday I attended the launch of the opening of the first major section of the Kororoit Creek Trail in Hobsons Bay.
The offroad shared trail between Barnes Road and Blackshaws Road is under construction and due to be complete by National Tree Day on 30th July 2017.
This section of trail was made possible by a massive donation by Toyota Australia to leave an ongoing legacy to the community and workers who were involved in the manufacturing plant in Altona North. The plant is closing in October.
Toyota Australia, the State Government through its Sport & Recreation budget, along with a Hobsons Bay Council Grant, have contributed more than 3.8 million dollars towards the development of this section of trail and artwork.
There was also a planting of 2,300 trees, plants and native grasses along the banks of the creek to celebrate National Tree Day and a tour of Geoffrey Ricardo’s public art commission ‘Spirits of Time and Place’. Kororoit Creek Sculpture Commission 2017
