East Gippsland Shire Council is undertaking several projects to revitalise Cann River, boosting community recovery and resilience.
These endeavours will replace outdated infrastructure to create new, safer and visitor-friendly facilities with economic growth and social benefits.
Mayor, Cr Tom Crook, said council is working on projects that will benefit locals and visitors alike.
"It's great to see this investment for Cann River," Cr Crook said.
"We're working to upgrade the skate park, build accessible toilets and change facilities, construct footpaths and improve parking. These infrastructure projects will improve the livability of the township for locals and create more reasons to stop and spend for visitors."
Works have already begun to demolish the deteriorating skate park features.
Project contractor, Grind Projects, anticipates the installation of the new infrastructure will take approximately two months.
