Craig Street Park opening was a resounding success! We had such a great time, and we were pleased so many could come out and celebrate with us. Well done and thank you to everyone who came along to help plant the new community garden. We achieved so much and hope you all enjoyed yourselves.

Council is planning for the future of Craig Street Park as part of an ongoing commitment to the Open Space Strategy

Much of what was suggested by our community at our August and November drop in sessions, and our online survey has been captured in the Final concept plan, taking into consideration available space and retaining features you liked about Craig Street Park. You can view the ‘What we heard’ report here.

Take a look to see how your ideas have informed the Craig Street Park Final Concept Plan or refer to the document library (right).

A variety of play, fitness and supporting infrastructure elements have been included in the Final Concept Plan:

  • New footpaths with accessible kerb crossing locations and path connections to accessible play equipment
  • Additional picnic setting and paved area in playground
  • New playground equipment and safety surfacing, including multi-feature play train with slide and rocking dinosaur for toddlers, spinning climbing net and in-ground trampoline for all ages, basket-seat swing for multiple users and a traditional and toddler seat swing set. Timber decks from the existing play equipment will be re-purposed for seating and informal play.
  • New fitness equipment suitable for all fitness levels.
  • New seating and timber battens for shade installed to existing pergola structure.
  • New raised timber community garden beds.
  • New picnic shelter and new shade trees to north section of raised platform.

Next Steps:

  • The park was opened on 17 August 2019

Tree management works

As part of the Craig Street Park upgrade, an independent tree assessment was conducted to assess the health and condition of all trees within the park. A number of recommendations were made for the maintenance of the trees across the park with works including dead wood removal, formative pruning, crown and weight reduction and tree removal. A total of four trees within the park were recommended for removal due to their poor structure, borer damage and canopy die back. See figure 1 for the location of trees to be removed.

Fifteen new trees will be planted in August once the park upgrade is complete.
