The parkland at Power Park is walking distance to Ploughmans Arms Estate and is about 18ha in size & already includes a dog park. You might have noticed Ballarat Council have recently added signage, new fencing, park seats and pathways to this parkland, this infrastructure has begun because the population is in rapid growth in the area & it is very important for parklands such has Power Park to support the ever growing community.
As the population continues to grow in the area and dwelling thresholds are hit or earlier at discretion of responsible authority, there are many more future plans for Power Park including Wetlands, Indoor Recreation Centre, Pavilion, Ovals, Athletic Track, Netball Court & Regional Play Space. This information is available for reference within the City if Ballarat’s Ballarat West – Development Contributions Plan (DCP) and Ballarat West Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) – see links http://www.ballarat.vic.gov.au/…/2019…/ballarat_west_dcp.pdf
Just to throw a few numbers out there, as it is well worth knowing – the recreational reserve has an estimated cost of over $12,000,000, the Indoor Recreational Centre (4 courts) over $8,800,000 and the Pavilion over $1,390,000.
All this future infrastructure will be walking distance to Ploughmans Arms Estate and opposite Pinarc Disability Support 53291300, the proposed future Primary School and the existing Bonshaw Early Learning Centre managed by Ballarat City Council & ECKA
