Patterson Park in peak time


The summer holidays are a time when Metung has an influx of visitors.  We have had mixed weather so far during the holidays but for a few days it was really quite warm and that is when the park shows what a godsend the revamp was. The park upgrade was officially opened in March 2015.

IMG_4042The park is now an enjoyable place to be and the surroundings are relaxing.  Ideal for a barbeque or picnic. Many families were taking the opportunity to make the most of the park.

IMG_4041The plants look as though they have been there for ever, it is hard to believe that it was only a year ago that they were planted.

IMG_4039The bright green strip in the foreground has been put down to eliminate the muddy stretch between the water and the grass and it has certainly solved that problem.

I am sure the family who originally donated the land for the park would be delighted with its new look.

    I haven’t been to Metung in years but I have very fond memories of the place. Nice to see upgrades.

      The park has really been the hub of the village this summer.
