Pocket Park Planting Project

Thank you to the many volunteers who turned up to complete the planting of Downton Crescent Pocket Park on Sunday September 10. The planting from 2022 is looking great and has greatly increased the biodiversity of the park.

This project contributes significantly to the Environmental Regeneration Pillar of the Council Climate Emergency Response Plan.

Unfortunately, the planting day scheduled for October 1st at Jacqueline Court has had to be postponed until next year.

We hope to be able to complete planting at the last two parks, Jacqueline Court and Mason Court in 2024.

The project is an extension of our Gardens for Wildlife program which encourages residents to increase the biodiversity of plants and animals in their garden.

Three parks in Douglas Court, Jennifer Crescent and Bezzant Reserve have been completed and it was great to see so many people turning up to help with the planting. Thank you all so much!

At each park we hold community meetings of the residents nearby to work with them to develop a planting plan that they are happy with and to encourage them to contribute to the care of the plants over the summer months.
