Improving Woodlands Park

We have plans to improve the design and accessibility of Woodlands Park and Salmon Reserve that include:

  • improving entry points into the parks
  • creating an integrated path network
  • upgrading existing picnic facilities
  • run revegetation works to improve the health and appearance of the ponds
  • planting native and indigenous groundcovers and grasses around the ponds
  • adding a mix of native and exotic tree species

Read more about our plans to improve Woodlands Park and Salmon Reserve in the master plan.

A reminder: please don’t feed the ducks or other birdlife. It’s very unhealthy for them.
