Have your say on Lismore Park

Lismore Park is the area of parklands and sporting ovals bordered by Dawson, Magellan, Brewster and Uralba Streets.

Lismore City Council is planning to redevelop it.

The plan is to leave the five sports ovals untouched.

Now Council wants input from Lismore's citizens.

Some of the ideas they've been thinking about include rerouting Browns Creek, developing landscaped ponds and constructed wetlands to treat stormwater, and building bridges and pathways for walking and cycling.

There are also preliminary plans for playgrounds, barbecue areas and open, grassy spaces.

Council's Sport and Recreation project officer James Voght told The Echo Lismore Park is "a beautiful piece of community land".

"With the right planning we could end up with a wonderful parkland that really enhances the city and becomes a showpiece for Lismore," he said.

Council will host a community workshop in the Gordon Pavilion at Oakes Oval on Tuesday, July 24, where people can view the concept plans and provide feedback.

The community workshop will run from 6-7.30pm and everyone is welcome.

For more information phone James Voght on 1300 878 387.
