Minister opens new all-abilities sculpture trail

Published on 15 September 2023


A new all-abilities sculpture trail linking Telford Park with the Bacchus Marsh 1000+ Steps at Bald Hill was officially opened by Minister for Regional Development, Harriet Shing, today.

Mayor, Cr Rod Ward, and Councillor Moira Berry welcomed the Minister to the shire for the official opening, followed by a walk to the trail summit. The wheelchair-accessible all-weather trail includes seating, tables, a shelter and an accessible toilet.

Cr Ward encouraged residents and visitors to experience the trail and, if they’re feeling active, climb the steps to the viewing platform on Bald Hill.

“The sculpture trail is stage 2 of the Bald Hill activation project and has created a beautiful space at Telford Park,” Cr Ward said.

This project has been made possible by the Victorian Government, with $1.6 million funded by Regional Development Victoria, on top of $500,000 in state funding provided for the first stage – the construction of the steps.
