We are excited to share that the first stage of works at Dillon Street Reserve will commence on Monday 19 April 2021. These works will include:
- Creation of a brighter and challenging play environment on the embankment with play equipment including a tubular slide, a large climbing net, balance beams and timber stepping posts.
- New footpaths, picnic settings, seating and a drinking fountain.
- New garden beds established with extensive plantings of shrubs and perennials.
Please note the Reserve will be closed for a duration of approximately 12 weeks to enable works to be delivered safely and a ‘Works Zone’ on Stephen Street opposite the Reserve will also be in place. We thank you for your patience and hope you will enjoy the end result.
The improvements we have prioritised for this year are proposed to be followed with a second stage upgrade with available funding determined over coming months. This stage is expected to include tree planting; a swing set, picnic settings and the establishment of garden beds with tree, shrub and perennial plantings in the southern half of the Reserve.
