Greens Lake is a popular waterway in Corop, south of Echuca, with facilities available all-year round to the public, including a picnic area, large grassy spaces and boat ramp access onto the lake. Other permitted activities include camping and fishing. The current toilet block has been condemned due to its dilapidated condition, therefore creating a hazard for the area as a whole. The development of an amenity block at the lake will cater to a range of needs including disabled people and families with young children, and provide the community with free, accessible, essential services while they visit.
Recreational spaces provide many advantages to communities: informal sport and recreation, preservation of natural environments, and provision of green space. Participation in active recreation also plays a key role in combating growing levels of obesity and helps prevent lifestyle-related diseases. Thus, improving access to public open space has the potential to increase levels of physical activity and have mental health benefits to a larger range of people in our communities.
GMW developed a Land & On-Water Management Plan in 2014 where the community identified the need for investment in the existing amenity block.
