Gibson Street Reserve Playground Upgrade

With the valuable feedback received from the community consultation in December 2016 - January 2017, Council has updated the concept plan for Gibson Street Reserve. Works are expected to commence in April 2018.

For further information and to view the updated concept design, please visit the Gibson Street Reserve Playground Upgrade webpage.

Barracluff Park Playing Field Returfing

Works to upgrade Barracluff Park's Playing Field are scheduled to occur from early November 2017 to late January 2018 (weather permitting). This work will achieve a sustainable playing field surface for year round safety, durability and playability.

The work includes the replacement of turf and the leveling of the field to improve user experience for the public and sporting groups.  As part of this work, the existing grass will be removed using herbicides.

While this work occurs, the site will be fenced off to ensure safety and allow the new grass surface to establish. The rest of the park will remain open for public use.

For further information on this project, please call Tony Thompson on 0466 461 340.

Thomas Hogan Reserve Upgrade

We're planning an upgrade to Thomas Hogan Reserve's central clearing and community hall landscape.

From September - November 2017, we collected feedback from the community on the draft concept design of Thomas Hogan Reserve. It was a wonderfull process. We had the opportunity to discuss the plan in detail, face to face with the community at our Have Your Say Days, onsite design walk throughs and we also received a number of responses through our survey on haveyoursaywaverley.com and via email and phone.

The updated concept design and feedback from the consultation can be viewed here.

The design will be further developed for construction. This includes seeking additional specialist advice in developing the details of the design.

Council will also engage a qualified professional to develop an Ecological Restoration Action Plan for Thomas Hogan Reserve.
