Council is proceeding with the works associated for the new Riverside Park on John St to be located at the site of the former Sutton dealership.

The concept plans by Terras Landscape Architects were endorsed by Council in 2016 and community feedback was invited during a public exhibition period.

The scope of the design includes:
  • Construction of a café space
  • Installation of two playgrounds - one for older children and one for younger children
  • Construction of public amenities
  • Footpath linkages to the river and existing cycleway
  • Lighting
  • Landscaping and casual seating

Council purchased the property in late 2013 comprising two parcels of land either side of John St. 

The project is being funded from developer contributions (section 94) towards public open space and voluntary planning agreements.
