Bridgewater Foreshore Park officially open
by Brighton Council
Stage 2 of the Bridgewater Parkland was officially opened by Federal Member for Lyons, Brian Mitchell, in late August. The family-friendly park has since become a very popular community space with state-of-the-art play equipment, gardens, tree plantings, BBQ shelter, toilets, picnic tables and bike racks. Material Institute and 24 Carrot Gardens shared a delicious lunch for the opening event and the East Derwent Primary School Jordan River Learning Federation students participated in fun activities to learn about caring for our natural environment.
Plans are currently underway to incorporate a pump track at the foreshore site in continuation of the Bridgewater Parkland Master Plan. The park was made possible through the Community Development Grants Programme of the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communication and the Arts.
Brighton Council wishes to thank everyone who came along and contributed to the day’s celebrations.
