Where to from here

Council has completed work since the adoption of the Grahame Stewart Park Landscape Plan. Additional funding for more park improvements will be sought over the coming years. The adoption of the landscape plan provides council with a sound base to lobby the state and federal governments for funding to help with future work in the park. 

Overview

Grahame Stewart Park provides open space for recreation activities, which benefits the community’s wellbeing. It plays an important role in the lives of local residents and council is committed to ensuring its future is adequately balanced.

Completed work at the park includes:

  • accessible car parking
  • a new shelter with electric BBQ and park furniture
  • installation of a flying fox
  • basketball court resurfacing
  • fencing to fully enclose the all abilities area
  • equipment replacement in the junior play area and
  • other minor improvements such as additional furniture and drainage.

No further work is scheduled at this point.
