Accessibility within the park has also been improved, with the upgrading of connecting pathways, and the introduction of new tree and garden bed plantings, creating a lush and inviting environment for families to explore.

But the excitement doesn’t stop there. The nearby Wavell Park is also set to benefit from these upgrades, with the construction of new scooter and bike trick nodes along the pathway from the corner of Fourteenth Avenue and Benelong Street.
