Zone 2X update

January 24, 2020

With the opening of the park in Zone 2X to the public, we are working through the impact such a new and exciting space has on the surrounding community.

It’s worth understanding works are not complete with a number of things still to be completed, including the storm water connection into the basin, new public art, internal park signage, street works for redundant cross overs, kerbs, paths and verge mulching.

Zone 2X dog exercise area will initially be closed

December 18, 2019

As Zone 2X nears completion and opens to the public, the new dog-exercise area in Zone 2X will remain closed to establish the new turf and landscaping.

The temporary dog-exercise area in John Bissett Park (cnr Miller St and Beatty Ave) will remain open in the meantime.

We expect the new dog-exercise area to be ready and open early in the new year.
