About the project

Davies Park is a much-loved, six-hectare green space in West End. The park has been providing sport and recreation opportunities for the community for more than 100 years.

Council undertook park improvements at Davies Park to enhance the park's existing leisure and recreation opportunities for residents and visitors. 

The project delivered park improvements that:

  • increase accessible green space
  • accommodate existing community lease activities in the park
  • promote a sense of community and celebrate its cultural heritage
  • increase the recreational use of the park.

Project details

The works included:

  • partially removing and reshaping existing mounts to create new green spaces and improve vistas through the park
  • building a new multi-use games area including some skateable elements
  • reconstruction and resurfacing part of the internal park roadway
  • installing drainage to reduce flooding in the park
  • replacing the existing sand volleyball courts with a multi-use hard court and gravel surface
  • installing:
    • new shade trees and landscaping
    • a new and accessible toilet block with six cubicles
    • two drinking fountains and five park seats.

Council thanks the local community for their patience and understanding while the construction works were completed.
