The Rotary Club of Mount Martha has partnered with the seven Rotary Clubs of the Mornington Peninsula and The Mornington Peninsula Shire to develop community infrastructure and amenity along existing paths that form the Bay Trail.
Our club is focused on developing the Harrap Creek Trail from the Briars to Craigie Road. This will mean that when the already funded Mornington to Moorooduc trail is complete, recreational cyclists will be able ride from existing city trails to the mouth of the Balcombe Creek in Mount Martha.
The Harrap Creek Trail is directly connected to the Briars and Balcombe Creek boardwalk which was constructed by the Rotary Club of Mount Martha in the 1990’s and 2000’s.
The existing Harrap Creek trail has no community infrastructure other than some graded gravel paths. The club’s vision is to see vibrant community infrastructure and amenity along the Harrap Creek trail and parkland that engages the community to use and care for the land.
 
A planting day was recently completed at the Mornington Park Primary School. Five Crepe Myrtles and three weeping Lilly Pillys have been planted in the recreation area and will provide beautiful autumn color and summer shade. The vegetables are obviously thriving in the planter boxes we constructed earlier in the year. Thanks to teacher Glen the music and garden teacher and the students who helped with the digging.
With the recent rain these new plantings will begin to thrive. Funding to complete this project was through a Rotary Foundation District grant project application.

Three recycled playgrounds that were harvested from Dega Ave Bentleigh, Bay Mt Martha and Memorial Drive, Noble Park have been delivered to the Rotary Donation in Kind (DIK) warehouse in Footscray.
 
These playgrounds were loaded in a shipping container and are now bound for Sri Lanka.
