A COMMUNITY garden in Mt Lawley is a step closer after Stirling council chose Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club as its preferred site.
The council will put the Stancliffe Street site out for comment in February before making a final decision next year.
The city had also considered Walter Road Reserve, Inglewood Oval, and Faull, Brear and Gooch Parks.
The bowling club met all the selection criteria, having a water connection, child-friendly fencing, on-site toilets and a central location.
Gooch Park, on the corner of Central and Hamer Parades, was considered but the neighbouring tennis club wasn’t happy.
Bowling club member Damien Lukich sits on the committee for the proposed community garden. He says the garden would be a win for the community and the club, which he predicts will experience increased activity and membership.
