Upgrade works for Michael Kelly rest area, Newtown

We’re upgrading this rest area on the corner of Yaralla and Brock lanes to make it a greener, more pleasant space for everyone to enjoy.

Project Status: In progress

Why we’re doing this

We developed a concept plan for the park upgrade based on your feedback from our consultation in late 2020.  We then modified the design and in mid-2021 asked the community for feedback. We used this feedback to refine the design, which Council approved in November 2021.

What we’re doing

The upgrade includes:

  • retaining the mature trees and removing 2 small, damaged trees
  • improving the grassed area and adding new palms, shrubs and groundcover plants
  • providing more bench seats and a low retaining wall that can be used for seating
  • installing fencing to improve privacy and park amenity
  • improving access at Brocks Lane entry with new paving and pram ramp
  • installing a new table with a chessboard, a garbage bin with a dog bag dispenser, and a water bubbler with a dog bowl.
