Community consultation identified a desire for Bank Street Park to be a place of recreation that provides open space, play spaces and areas for respite, with a naturalistic form and character. In the first time in over a century, community will be reconnected with the water in this location.
Through consultation, the community identified a vision for Bank Street Park:
A welcoming and accessible park that caters to different users and activities
Quality amenities to support park users
Consideration of the needs of boating users and water sports
Connection to the water and enhanced views
A distinct identity for the park
Connection to Country and First Nations.
The design is underpinned by:
First Nations design
Art and culture
