An Advisory Group comprising local community and Council members, responsible for developing a recently gazetted 52 ha public recreational reserve with a comprehensive management plan focused on restoration and recreational amenities. Two restoration projects, comprising some 9,000 native plants, have been/are almost completed on riparian margins under willow canopy. High success rate, but ongoing weed maintenance and finding volunteers is a major problem.
