Fences Removed to Reveal Capel Civic Precinct Stage 3

After six months of construction the fences at the Capel Civic Precinct Stage 3 have been removed.

Capel Shire Council Chief Executive Officer Ian McCabe said while the fences had been removed around the site, there were minor works still being carried out and he asked people to be cautious when using the area.

“We didn’t want to delay opening the new area to the public, given the final works can be done over the next couple of weeks,” he said.

“The BBQs at the skatepark and playground are not operational yet, the limestone capping throughout the skateable link is still being finished and there is an exciting new rope climbing tower to be installed.

“We ask that you please take care while using the precinct, especially the skateable elements which can be slippery when wet.”

He said this was a fabulous addition to the Capel Townsite and was excited to see the community enjoy the space.
