In April 2020 Council voted in favour of proceeding with the design phase of creek works on Second Creek at ‘the beach’ area in Borthwick Park. This area has suffered from erosion, silt build-up, high winter water flows, and stagnant standing summer water.

As well as addressing the problems mentioned, there is potential to create a landmark aquatic/nature play area using intelligent design and with safe and easy access for parents and children.

At this stage Council has not yet advanced this design work.
