ALP promise funding for Frankston Arts Trail

If elected, the Australian Labor Party has promised to provide $2 million to deliver the Frankston Arts Trail, a proposed arts and cultural bike trail.

The proposed 7.4 kilometre trail will begin at the Frankston pier and makes its way along the foreshore, crossing over Kananook Creek and moving into the Frankston CBD.

The trail will then connect with the Baxter Trail and progress towards the Peninsula Link, with connections to Jubilee Park, Bunurong Park and the McLelland Sculpture Park and Gallery in Langwarrin. The trail will also connect with the Peninsula Link trail in the east.

“The new Frankston Regional Arts Trail will benefit everyone in our community, from young families to our seniors, as well as our local tourism and hospitality industries,” said Labor candidate for Dunkley Peta Murphy.

The Frankston Arts Trail will include sculptures, canvasses and murals that celebrate local arts, culture, heritage and Indigenous history.

The project will be led by Frankston City Council, who have earmarked the trail as a priority project.

“The Frankston Regional Arts Trail will link a host of arts, cultural and nature attractions in the Frankston district, delivering increased visitation and greater enjoyment for all,” said Lisa Byrne, Director of the McLelland Gallery.
