New vegetation will not only create a cooler, more appealing space for the community but will also treat stormwater runoff into the nearby Hunter Water channel. New trees and grasses will be arranged as island plantings above the floodplain of the watercourse and will complement a future dog park and cycleway running through the park.

Planting dates: To be completed by April, 2021
