Here’s what was requested, but will not be included:
- Full size tennis court
- Upgraded skate facilities
- Pump track
- Signage on all plants
It’s important to know why these features will not be included. A full size tennis court, upgrade to the skate facilities, pump track and rotunda were all outside the scope for a District Family Park. Instead of placing signage on all plants within the reserve, community members interested in local flora and fauna are invited to join in the new Naturehoodz project. being managed by the council via the iNaturalist mobile application and website.
The app and website is an opportunity for residents and council staff to work together by making recordings of field observations and the locations of species, then sharing the information to contribute to site planning, benefitting local people, plants and animals alike.
