Stage 2 engagement has closed

Thank you to everyone who participated. We are now reviewing your feedback.

We’re making some improvements because we want everyone to feel welcome and enjoy Arch Gibson Reserve!

What's happened so far

In September 2022, we asked you about your ideas for improving Arch Gibson Reserve and spoke to more than 70 people online and in-person.

Five key messages emerged from the consultation:

  • A desire to see a fitness equipment area.
  • A need to improve amenities by including a drinking fountain, a bin, dog bag dispensers and seats.
  • The need to keep the off-lead dog area.
  • A footpath to improve connectivity to surrounding paths.
  • A climbing structure for play.
  • Protection of rewilding projects and replanting at Creekside.
