Dillon Street Reserve is growing bigger! Council has received a 1300m2 parcel of land from Anglicare, the owners of the Old Scottish Hospital site. We have a unique opportunity to develop this precious open space to provide a range of recreational uses for the community.

We'd like our community to help re-design the park. Over the next few months, there will be a number of opportunities for people to be involved, starting with a meet and greet that was held on site on Saturday 27 July. We have used information from that day to help shape the survey, and received some additional feedback from many in the community.

NEXT STEP: Design workshops to be held at Cooper Park Community Hall.

Registration is required.

Parks and Open Space mean different things to different people, depending on stage of life and interests. This is a rare opportunity to expand the Reserve and for our local community to get involved in helping to design their local park.

To get involved, please:
