Creating a new park - Elder Street South Reserve

Background

Elder Street South Reserve is a 4-hectare former landfill site in Clarinda that has been rehabilitated and is now ready to be turned into a park for the benefit of the community.

Early consultation was undertaken at the Spring Fair held in the North Ward at Keeley Park in October 2019. Play-ground space, nature play, active space, sustainable/green space and general amenity were the key themes that emerged from the early consultation.


The site:

You can download a site map from the Document Library on the right.

The site is also outlined in red in the below map.

As Elder Street South is a former landfill site, there are some restrictions that will limit what we can do to the site. The site is quite undulated (up and down), so large sports grounds may not be possible. There may also be restrictions if digging to great depths is required.


Have your say
