Trees in parks and gardens
The trees in our parks and open spaces are highly valued by the community. They help to enhance these areas, providing a connection to nature that can be hard to find in the inner city as well as providing habitat for local wildlife.
Council is committed to increasing natural shade around playgrounds and to incorporating trees and other plants into play areas. Tree planting opportunities in parks are identified through Park Master Plans and through an annual process to identify new planting opportunities in all parks.
