Have your say on the upgrade to Putarri Reserve at St Ives

Published on 10 April 2018

Local residents are being asked their views on a design for the reserve that has been prepared with community input. 

The Council talked to local residents in the vicinity of Puttari Reserve last year about what they would like to see as part of any upgrade, and received over 100 submissions.

Based on some of the ideas submitted, the Council’s landscape architects have now prepared a design for the upgrade and are seeking community feedback until Friday 27 April.

Puttari Reserve runs alongside Putarri Avenue and nearby Rosedale Road in St Ives. The Reserve has been prioritised for an upgrade due to the area’s high influx of young families.

The draft design contains community suggestions such as new fencing, landscaping and a range of playground equipment such as a slide, swings, climbing frame and an accessible carousel.

Permanent shade sails are proposed for the toddler playground area as well as a picnic shelter and an accessible car parking space.

Mayor Jennifer Anderson said the intention was to build a new inclusive park which everyone can enjoy.

“This is an exciting project for us and we’re grateful to those residents who’ve taken the time to give us their ideas.”

Local residents were notified by mail about the proposed design this week. Click here for the draft design and online survey
