Since developing the plan the community has done a fantastic job of designing a community park, preparing the space, working with Council to secure funding and most importantly, working together to build the park. It is a credit to the community and the locals and visitors are enjoying it immensely. The Maindample Progress Association is now focussing on relocating the old railway goods shed to a new site to be restored and used by the community. Go Maindample!

Maindample Park - proposed community open space area

The Maindample Progress Association in partnership with Council, have prepared plans to convert the old Maindample School site into a community open space area.

The plans include:
  • creation of shared pedestrian-bike pathways
  • BBQ shelter, BBQ and picnic tables
  • public toilets
  • playground
  • playing field area

External funding will need to be sourced to implement the project, but fundraising efforts are already underway within the Maindample community.
