The park improvements will be delivered over two stages:

  • Park lighting
  • More seating
  • Drinking fountain with dog bowl
  • Expanded barbecue area
  • Bluestone and concrete paved entrance from Canterbury Road
  • Upgraded path through Fairbairn Reserve
  • Additional garden bed planting

The first stage, delivered in late-2020, saw construction of the shelter and barbecue area, more seating and a drinking fountain.

The second stage will deliver new paths, fencing, lighting and planting. This is the final stage of works and will be delivered by the end of 2023.
