New exercise equipment on the way for Dunns Road Reserve

Published on 20 February 2023


Mount Martha locals will be excited to learn that Dunns Road Reserve will be getting new fitness equipment this year!

The original fitness equipment was removed due to its age and being unsafe.

The Shire has allocated $150,000 towards its replacement. It is anticipated to be installed by December 2023.

But before we begin, we want to get your thoughts on the kinds of fitness equipment you’d like to see at the reserve.

Community consultation is currently open and closes 20 March 2023.
