Bernie Goodwin Memorial Park

Bernie Goodwin Memorial Park

Background

Council has developed a Master Plan for Bernie Goodwin Memorial Park, which will guide the park’s transformation into an exciting recreation precinct.

Some of the upgrades and improvements included in the Plan include:

  • outdoor exercise equipment,
  • barbecue facilities and picnic areas,
  • two new playground areas
  • upgraded toilet amenities,
  • a skate park, and
  • dedicated open space for recreational activities.

Stage one works

While undertaking the works contractors’ unearthed asbestos. Remediation works are now underway and scheduled to be completed in April 2020.

While every attempt has been made to retain the existing trees on-site, a number of trees within the playground area will need to be removed. To replace these trees, a variety of mature trees and tube stock will be planted across the entire site before the playground works begin.

Construction works for the playground are expected to start in May 2020 and be completed in August 2020.

We look forward to delivering a new and exciting facility for the Morisset community as soon as we can and we would like to thank the community for their ongoing patience and understanding.

We will provide further updates on this project as more information becomes available.
