Demolition begins for Rodney Park redevelopment

By Liz Mellino

It was a monumental day yesterday at Rodney Park Village in Mooroopna, with demolition beginning on the new $20 million redevelopment.

To be known as Mooroopna Place, the new Shepparton Villages aged care facility will include 100 residential care beds housing residents from the former Waratah Lodge, Grevillea Lodge and Boronia House.

Established in 1990, the first sod was turned on the new development last month, marking the end of an era in Mooroopna.

With works started, the facility is expected to be finished by September next year.
