Community consultation

Earlier this year we worked closely with the local community to design the park and meet the needs of local residents and park users. We received 110 responses to our community survey which was used to design the upgrades. We also received written submissions and votes from the community on different options. Community members said they would like the park design to incorporate kid’s outdoor fitness and play equipment, more shade including newly planted trees, seating with backs and armrests for older residents, improved walkway access, and a design that provides opportunities to socialise.

Council partnered with St Joseph’s Primary School to engage children in the park planning process. Over 180 primary school children were encouraged to share their ideas for improving the park, which included open green space, climbing equipment, space for ball games and the ability to meet and play with their friends.
