    Council will also work in collaboration with Class 5 students from St Joseph’s Primary School. The students will become Junior Park Planners for a week to interview their peers to determine what they would like to see in the park.

    We will then review the feedback and host a Family Fun Day in the park in February 2020 to share your specific design ideas for the park, including the choice of play equipment. Watch this space for more information.
