Williams Reserve Landscape Upgrade Works

Following consultation at Williams Reserve, landscape upgrade works are scheduled to commence in the first week of May 2017. They will take approximately 12 weeks to complete, weather permitting. During this time the park will be unavailable for use.

Upgrade works will include the following:

  • The introduction of a grove of ornamental maples along the length of Victoria Street
  • The introduction of contrasting concrete paving under the grove
  • The provision of garden bed squares under the grove, with carved out seating niches
  • Provision of a new playground in the east of the park that includes both traditional and unstructured play equipment
  • A large semi-circular central lawn area
  • A BBQ area in the west of the park to allow for social gatherings
  • A new low permeable fence along Victoria Street
  • Some existing trees in poor condition will be removed as part of the new plan; however the overall number of trees in the park will increase.

 A copy of the plan is provided below.
