Start the conversation

Canberra residents are being called on to have their say on upgrades to the Tuggeranong foreshore and a new recreation park in Casey.

Opening consultation for the programs, Minister for Transport and City Services, Chris Steel said the public’s feedback was being sought on upgrades around Lake Tuggeranong to make it a better place to visit for recreation.

“This could include more trees, bins and seating, or upgrades to landscaping, paths, playgrounds and skate park, parking, shelter, toilets and outdoor dining amenities and other community priorities,” Mr Steel said.

“Lake Tuggeranong users are invited to drop a pin on a map of the Lake and tell us where they would like to see specific improvements to facilities and other infrastructure,” he said.

The Minister said a new community recreation park was on the cards for Casey and residents in the Gungahlin region.

Mr Steel said City Services had released a draft concept plan for feedback, proposing improvements to the park including a basketball court; bike track; grassed amphitheatre; toilets; barbecues; irrigated green space; a community garden space; and a pedestrian crossing linking to the existing playground and car parking.

“Gungahlin residents are encouraged to have a say on their priorities for these works and other improvements to this new community space,” he said.
