Coal Creek Community Park and Museum in Korumburra will be opening its doors again on December 5.
Coal Creek closed to the public on 20 March due to COVID-19. Now it is preparing to open just in time for the Christmas / New Year holiday period.
Coal Creek Community Park and Museum Coordinator Rowena Ashley said she was looking forward to welcoming visitors, staff and volunteers back to the park.
“It will be great to see people enjoy the park once more. It has been a long time coming,” Ms Ashley said.
Visitors will now be required to book a ticket via Coal Creek’s website to access the park. Tickets will be available from November 27. There will also be number limits, and two time slots each day to keep the park COVID safe.
To ensure all visitors are safe, the park will be reopened in stages. The first of which will not include the opening of outbuildings and the train will not be operating.
“We understand that this approach may cause some frustration for visitors, however we must ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and the public. We strongly believe that the park can still be enjoyed with these restrictions in place. Bring a picnic basket, fill it up locally and come enjoy the park with us. We can’t wait to see you,” Ms Ashley said.
