City of Palmerston wants to hear from our community to help determine a suitable suburban location for an outdoor basketball half-court. 

Council is keen to increase opportunities for Palmerston residents to participate in informal active recreation. The addition of this outdoor court will provide another opportunity for Palmerston residents to get outdoors and play sport. 

Council has prioritised locations where no such facilities currently exist in the local area, which also have suitable land available and ideally, have existing infrastructure already in place to support this new addition. 

Proposed locations include:

•    Cornwallis Park, GRAY
•    Flinders Park, DURACK 
•    Joan Fejo Park, ROSEBERY
•    Lindsay Park, MOULDEN
•    Marlow Lagoon Recreation Reserve, MARLOW LAGOON
•    President Park, DRIVER
•    Sanctuary Lakes, GUNN
•    Woodroffe Park, WOODROFFE

As part of the project Council will review existing landscaping and determine outdoor furniture requirements at the chosen location. (Lighting will not be installed as this will be a daytime facility only). Council anticipates the new half-court to be available for use by September 2018.

The community can address their comments on the project to the Community Engagement Team:

This project will increase the number of recreational facilities provided by Council, which includes existing outdoor basketball half-courts (located in Woodroffe, Gray, Johnston, Moulden, CBD), the four exersites and the 57 playgrounds across the municipality.

Consultation closes: 5pm, Monday 30 July 2018
