The Grahame Stewart Park Landscape Plan was adopted at council's Ordinary Meeting on 18 June 2015.
The landscape plan for Grahame Stewart Park allows council to better plan the park's development, ensuring future improvements suit the long term vision for the park. The landscape plan shows what the park should look like and how it should function in the future.
Key features of the Grahame Stewart Park Landscape Plan include:
- improved facilities for dog off leash users
- development of an all abilities play space including car parking, amenities, play elements and improved access for pedestrians.
