Tallangatta Triangles Revitalisation
The Triangles revitalisation is the final stage of the Destination Tallangatta Project.
In December 2020, following extensive community consultation and co-design, we shared the final plan for the revitalisation of The Triangles in Tallangatta.
The upgrades at The Triangles will include:
- maintaining the green, natural and open space
- increasing and improving seating
- improving the safety of the playground with a barrier between the playground and the street
- improving accessibility with pathways
- increasing shade and shelter
- creating a dedicated place for Sandy the War Horse statue
- refurbishing the information centre and toilets.
Works to the park commenced in December 2020 and will be staggered to minimise disruptions.
The project was shaped by key messages from our community. Overall, the messages included:
- A desire to retain and protect the open, green and natural feel of The Triangles while making the area more functional for generations to come. The shade and amenity provided by the mature trees is highly valued by residents and a welcomed respite for visitors, providing a unique atmosphere in the centre of town.
- A need for improved seating, improved playground safety, more accessible pathways, shade and shelter and more toilets.
- A desire to consider a place for the Sandy the War Horse statue to be positioned in the future.
Feedback to our final plan also focused on the proposed gabion wall and seating at the playground, accessibility and rough surfaces of existing footpaths. As a result, we:
- have paused development of the gabion wall to review alternate options, as well as seating around the playground
- intend to replace all existing faux brick footpaths.
Since November 2019, we've received input from more than 170 community members and gained valuable insight into what the community wants to see at The Triangles.
Consultation happened in a number of ways:
- public survey
- youth art competition
- focus group with Bolga Court residents
- focus group with community groups and schools
- focus group with Tallangatta Early Years
- community workshop
- council staff workshop
- direct customer requests.
Construction on the toilet block and Visitor Information Centre commenced.
Construction of the toilet block was completed. Refurbishment of the Visitor Information Centre is still in progress.
Works are expected to be completed by early spring.
Alternative toilet facilities are available at:
- Temporary toilets onsite (location is for accessibility reasons)

- Tallangatta Integrated Community Centre (library)
