A reduction in the speed limit on a busy section of Griffith Road will help to keep pedestrians safe, while also progressing plans to enhance Lavington's CBD as a place to meet.

The cultural significance of Mungabareena Reserve to the local Aboriginal community has been enshrined by the endorsement of an important management plan for the site.

From little things, big things grow ...

The former plantation site at 'Waterview', Splitters Creek, will grow into a natural box woodland in years to come, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of local children who've been planting native trees in the area. When the trees grow they'll provide happy homes to native wildlife.

Concrete progress

Plastic recycled by Albury residents is literally helping to form the surfaces on which we walk. It's being used to make 'bar chairs' that reinforce new concrete poured in developments across the city.

Fantastic plastic
Flower power brings festival fun for green thumbs

Our beautiful Botanic Gardens will be alive with colour in spring when we host our brand new garden festival - the first-ever 'Gardenesque'. Complete with live music, wine and food, hands-on activities for kids and of course sensational blooms, it will be the biggest garden festival the city's ever seen. We're now looking for partners to help make it a blooming success.
