STAGE 1 MIDLAND PARK TO GO AHEAD!
Work will soon begin on the first stage of a new community park at New Junction after the City of Swan Council approved the landscape design for the first stage of the recreational heart of the precinct last night.
The plans feature a a kick-about lawn and terraced seating, play and recreational areas for children and teens, groves of trees and special recognition of Midland’s history and heritage through public art and interpretive elements. Stage 1 forms part of a One Hectare park proposed within the New Junction precinct.
The youth area will include rock climbing, a tennis practice wall and basketball half-court.
Designs for stage one were developed earlier this year, before being taken to the community for feedback in September and October.
City of Swan Deputy Mayor Kevin Bailey said he was pleased to see the Midland community coming together to have their say on the final design of the park.
Councillor Bailey said the revisions to the landscape designs included reducing the scope of an interpretive feature wall to improve sight lines for parents supervising children in the play area.
Upon completion of the redevelopment, New Junction will boast a total of over 2.3Ha of new public open spaces.
