Park fully up­graded

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - NEWS -

THE up­grade to Hope Av­enue Re­serve in Sal­ter Point is now com­plete af­ter com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion in Septem­ber 2016.

The up­grade pro­vides a new recre­ation space for the com­mu­nity in Sal­ter Point.

Eighty new trees were planted in the re­serve this au­tumn. They were se­lected to at­tract birds and show­case lo­cal and water­wise trees suit­able for back­yards.

The new plant­ings fea­ture fan­tas­tic flow­ers and fo­liage. As they ma­ture the trees will pro­vide plenty of shade for the new lawns, paths, seat­ing and water­wise gar­dens.

Other new ameni­ties in­clude seats, a rub­bish bin, drink foun­tain with dog bowl and a mul­ti­court with a new net­ball hoop to com­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing bas­ket­ball hoop.

A new park path pro­vides ac­ces­si­ble en­try to the ex­ist­ing play­ground and new sit­ting ar­eas, con­nect­ing Hope Av­enue with Roe­buck Drive.
