Feedback on the proposed wetland closed on 17 October 2023. Thank you to all that provided comments. We will provide an update on final plans and delivery timelines in the coming months, with delivery scheduled to begin in early 2024.
We want to hear your thoughts on a wetland proposed at Gilbert Park, as part of a Masterplan endorsed in 2018.
The proposed wetland will be situated on the western side of the park, with no interference to the existing Skate Park.
It will be funded through Council's Capital Works Program at an estimated cost of $450K.
The development aims to offer a range of benefits, including:
- Diverting runoff from Council's stormwater system to improve water quality
- Enhancing biodiversity by providing new habitat for native animals and plants
- Creating a modern deck / platform overlooking both the Skate Park and new wetland for visitors to enjoy
- Extending a walking path for visitors to utilise through the reserve.
To ensure the park's enhancement aligns with the community, we invite you to view the proposed wetland below.
