Haven Anzac Park

What is our vision for the Park?

That the Haven Recreation Reserve – Anzac park - will provide a range of opportunities for our community to be socially connected and physically active.

The Reserve and the Park will support a diversity of experiences, celebrate the natural environment and be a meeting place for the community.

Who did we consult?

We received 79 responses from our community via the feedback survey. Responses were completed electronically and via printed surveys. We received a high level of response when we attended the Haven Market.

When did the consultation occur?

Consultation and conversations occurred from the beginning of December 2021 through to the end of February 2022.

What were we told?

People confirmed the importance of:

  • Creating opportunities for social connection and family gatherings
  • Trees, shade, tables and seating that encourage people to gather and linger longer in the area
  • Nature-based play that is accessible to people of different ages and abilities
  • Connected pathways that can be used by different people – for walking, running and movement around the area
  • Public art being integrated throughout the area so the Park is a welcoming entrance to the Reserve.

What changes have we made to the draft plan?

Most of the feedback we received was already present in the draft plan but on the revised plan we have shown extra seating and tables for family gatherings. Explanatory notes have been added to ensure pathways and access to all areas are accessible to people with different levels of mobility. Reference to public art has been strengthened.

Next steps in the process

The revised plan is available on this page – for information

A report will be presented to Council recommending that the plan for the development of Haven Anzac Park be adopted. The report will be presented to Council by the end of October 2022.

The report will summarise the process of consultation and design of the draft plan and will explain the benefits to our community of investment in developments at Haven Anzac Park.
