  • Bandon Terrace Reserve, Marino | Open 28 August 2018 to 18 September 2018

    about 2 months ago
    Bandon terrace reserve current proposed 6x4


    Bandon Terrace Reserve is being upgraded to provide a pleasant, natural, and resilient landscape for everyone to enjoy into the future.

    Council is investing up to $275,000 on a new playground and shade sail at Bandon Terrace Reserve. A further $55,500 will be invested to put into action a revegetation plan to improve the biodiversity and amenity for the reserve.

    Council will commence construction of a new playground in early 2019 which will include:

    • New play equipment
    • A new 3-on-3 basketball court, netball ring and cricket nets
    • Kick-about space
    • Shade sail
    • A new BBQ and picnic setting

    A concept design for the upgrade of the reserve’s landscape includes the introduction of garden beds, native plants and grasses to enrich the biodiversity of the area.

    The garden beds will be located around the edge of the reserve and will be planted with flowering plants and low lying native shrubs to provide colour and attract a diverse range of species to the reserve.

    We will also use this as an opportunity to re-grade and level the south-eastern grass area, as requested by the community during the consultation process for the playground in November 2017.

    The area will be re-seeded with native grass, which requires less irrigation and maintenance while allowing the community to enjoy the reserve as it is presently, with the added benefit of having more natural revegetated spaces which are adaptable to a changing climate.

    It is anticipated that planting will occur between April and August 2019.

    Please provide your feedback via the survey.
