Mt Evelyn celebrates athletics track at last

by Kimberley Seedy
Lilydale-Yarra Valley Leader
25 Sep 2012

Mt Evelyn is home to a new $2 million athletics track.

THE $2.8 million Yarra Ranges athletics track in Mt Evelyn is finally open.

The Morrison Reserve track was officially opened on September 15 after 10 years of passionate campaigning from the community and support from the Yarra Ranges Council and the State Government.

Yarra Ranges Athletics president Susan Taylor said the club was delighted with the synthetic track after running on grass.

"It means the kids can perform better, and they are less likely to get injuries to their feet and legs," Ms Taylor said.

"The kids are so enthusiastic - they jump out of the car and run down to use it."

The project was funded with $2.4 million from Yarra Ranges Council and $400,000 from the State Government. The next stage is a pavilion that will overlook the athletics track.

Cr Tim Heenan said as well as being the home of Yarra Ranges Athletics, soccer clubs, schools and community groups would also use the track.
