Connection to the Kiewa River has long been a high priority for the community of Kiewa and Tangambalanga with both Council and the community trying to gain public access to the river for many years.
Council committed to providing community access to the river as part of the 2018 Kiewa Tangambalanga Placemaking Strategy.
From there, we then worked closely with the North East Catchment Management Authority (NECMA) to purchase the site known to locals as the ‘NECMA depot’, the parcel of land located at 37 Kiewa East Road, Kiewa. With its river frontage and large open space, it was identified as the ideal place to develop a community space.
We want to work with the community to develop a plan for the site which includes access to the river for swimming and fishing as well as other informal recreation activities.
Your input into to how the space can be best used is crucially important and there are a number of ways you can get involved.
How you can get involved
