Cedric Archer Park

In August 2015 Council officially opened Stage One of the redevelopment of Cedric Archer Park with the unveiling of the new $410,000 playground that features state of the art play experiences, shaded play spaces and soft fall. Additionally, with the assistance of technology the ‘Smart Play Fort’ can be used in conjunction with some of Hans Christian Andersen’s famous story books. By downloading the App children can take a story book journey through the fort.

Upgrades to the power supply at Cedric Archer Park have been completed and has included reconnection of the barbeques and power and lighting to the rotunda.

Hydraulic assessments have been conducted on the ponds located in the Touch of Paradise area of Cedric Archer Park. These assessments will assist Council in determining ways to improve water flow, reduce aquatic weeds and to stabilise areas of the bank. The primary aim is to activate the lake area.  This work will be done in 2017.

In July 2016, Council officially opened the new street plaza style skate park. The existing skate park has reached the end of its life and is being demolished.

The work has not stopped at Cedric Archer Park, with a $1,150,000 budget allocation for the 2016/17 Financial Year.
