Updates of the new Riverside Park on John Street

While the wet weather has prevented a couple of concrete pours on site this week, there is still plenty going on at Riverside Park on John Street.

Check out the amazing sky bridges taking shape. 

Footpath works also continue this week, which will see levelling taking place before new pavers are laid.

Over the next couple of weeks there will be more concrete pours, installation of soft fall and more equipment (including three of the most exciting slippery dips you will ever see), plumbing works and the erection of permanent fencing before landscaping can begin.

Mayor Sue Moore confirms with General Manager Jason Linnane that the park will hopefully be opening in the first few months of 2019.
