Council is planning to upgrade Lowalde Recreation Reserve with features that help our community get active, socialise and enjoy the outdoors. We are developing a master plan to create a vision and direction for the reserve’s future. The master plan will include short- and long-term improvements to be delivered over the next 10 years.
What is the master plan?
The Lowalde Recreation Reserve master plan is a high level document providing a holistic vision for the entire reserve. The master plan does not focus on one specific item or user group, but instead looks at all of the reserve’s assets and users. The master plan aims to find a balance for the needs of all the user groups and the facilities required by the different types of activities. It will outline the improvements required to achieve this balance in a staged action plan. In addition, the plan will need to meet the current and future community and users.
The master plan will investigate issues such as:
- aged sports and park infrastructure (including the playground)
- public access and connections
- visibility and safety (including lighting).
The master plan will also investigate opportunities to enhance active and passive recreation in the reserve. This may include:
- circuit walking paths
- picnic shelters and seating
- informal multi-sport courts (for example, half-court basketball, table tennis or bocce)
- fitness stations.
