Work will soon commence on an $800K upgrade to Drewan Park at the new Wandana residential project above Highton.

The upgrade, a collaboration between developer Villawood Properties and the City of Greater Geelong, will include new plantings and path network, play equipment, picnic and barbecue facilities, as well as a new shelter and public restrooms.

The park will feature zones for children of different ages and abilities with large grassed areas. Trees identified by independent arborists as unhealthy are being replaced three trees for every one removed.

Sited high above Highton, adjoining the historic Brownhill Lookout, the park will offer views across Geelong and Corio Bay to the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast.

The park upgrade is expected to be completed early in the new year.
