Jefferson Park sits between Frederick Street and Henderson Parade Merewether, providing extensive views of the coastline. Due to the exposure of the site, tree planting remains a challenge and shade is identified as one of the key elements missing from the beach reserves. We will be undertaking minor works to the park during 2023.
Stage 1 - Tree Planting
Stage 1 focused on the successful planting of six trees along the edge of Henderson Parade. The chosen tree species (pandanus pedunculatus, or screw pine) is well adapted to exposed coastal locations and was selected following consideration of the local soil and climate conditions.
Stage 2 - Concept Plan
Stage 2 is the development of a Concept Plan that will focus on further minor improvements to the park. Community engagement on the concept plan will be undertaken as part of the planning process.
