About the project

As recommended in the Lutwyche Corridor Neighbourhood Plan, Council established a new park at Chalk Street, Lutwyche, to serve the recreation needs of local residents. The aim was to create a local recreation park, shaped by the local community, that provides a green space for residents and opportunities for activity and relaxation.

Community feedback received on the draft concept plan was supportive of the proposed park embellishments and showed a preference for picnicking and socialising facilities, a children's playground, quiet reflective areas and walking and sporting activities, which are now available for residents to use. 

New park features include:

  • picnic shelters with an accessible drinking fountain to provide a gathering space for park visitors
  • new playground equipment including shade and a safety fence
  • planting area with shade trees to separate the playground from the street
  • open space for informal sport and activities
  • bollards along the park boundary
  • shade trees and streetscape planting
  • pathways through and surrounding the park
  • fitness equipment
  • bike repair station
  • off-street parking on Marita Street.

This project is part of Council's commitment to enhancing and maintaining more than 2160 parks across the city.

Council would like to thank the community for their patience while these important works were undertaken.
