What we heard from the community on Stage Two

Stage Two includes upgrades to the southern end of the reserve as detailed in the (concept) Open Space and Landscape Plan. The Plan focuses on rejuvenating the 19th century heritage green spaces and garden beds, creating a winding path network and upgrading the playground.

Thank you to everyone who participated in Council's consultation process for Stage 2 of the Dennis Reserve Master Plan Implementation Project. We received a lot of good feedback through Participate, written emails, responses submitted at the library and from conversations with community members at the two community drop in sessions.

VISITATION Required

What are your main reasons for visiting the reserve?

What type of equipment would you like to see included in the playground? Keep in mind that the space allocated for a playground is small. Dennis Reserve is a heritage reserve therefore the playground will integrate into the surrounding landscaping.

Do you have any local knowledge or historical information about the reserve you would like to share to inform the final Open Space and Landscape Design? If yes, please share below.

The survey form is now closed. Thanks for your contributions.
