Love will be in the air at Wyndham Park on Valentine’s Day.
On Friday, February 14, residents will be able to take their first look at the upgraded Werribee park, which has been redeveloped by Wyndham council under a $13 million project, including a $3.2 million grant from the state government’s Growing Suburbs Fund.
The park is now home to an adventure play space, an events lawn, seating, toilets, barbecues, shelters, new pathways, improvements to cycling access, viewing areas and improved lighting.
On Valentine’s Day, the council will screen two movies at the park, Shrek at 6pm and The Notebook at 8pm.
There will be free children’s activities from 5pm, including making your own flower crown.
Picnics are welcome and there will also be dessert treats available for purchase.
Entry is via Wedge Street Piazza and visitors are encouraged to bring along their own picnic blanket or camp chair.
The event will be alcohol-free, see wyndham.vic.gov.au/valentinesday for details.
