Gosnells residents living close to Chelsfield Street Reserve will see their park transformed over the coming months, as the City of Gosnells begins an upgrade of the one-hectare site.

The City’s Mayor David Goode said the park redevelopment was designed around a number of features identified by residents during a consultation meeting late last year.

“We’re very excited to be delivering this project with so many of the features requested by our community, including a pee-wee BMX track, nature-based play equipment and access paths to the park,” the Mayor said.

“Families will have plenty of space for play and exercise, with a sports multi-goal and large lawn areas, as well as a new playground with shade sails, sand and rubber soft-fall for all abilities play.

“The park’s mature trees will be retained – something our community specifically asked for – and the City will also plant more trees and add mulch layers to create an eco-zone to lower water consumption.”

A bore, with an iron filter to prevent staining, will also be installed to improve water efficiency.

Other aspects of the redevelopment include seating, lighting, a drinking fountain and bicycle racks.

The project is expected to be completed by August and is part of the City’s Green Space Planning, which focuses on ensuring parks meet the community’s needs.
