may-park-in-victoriaHorsham’s May Park, a well-known rest-stop and community park on the Western Highway, midway between Melbourne and Adelaide, is undergoing upgradation to make it even more comfortable and appealing for travellers.

 

By improving the facilities within the park, travellers will be encouraged to stop for longer and take time to spend money in the town’s local shops and food outlets.

 

Ageing toilet facilities are being replaced with new amenities, including a ‘Changing Places’ fully accessible toilet catering for people with disabilities who cannot use standard accessible toilets. It will be the first and only ‘Changing Places’ facility in the region.

 

The works will also include an updated barbecue area, shelters, landscaping, fencing, closed-circuit television cameras and improved parking, including a disabled car park adjacent to the ‘Changing Places’ facility.

 

The installation of a historic May and Millar wagon, once owned by foundry owners Samuel May and James Millar who helped shape Horsham in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, will also link visitors to the town’s Art and Heritage trail.
