Glindemann Park creek restoration project

Written by 

Council is planning an exciting makeover for Glindemann Creek in Glindemann Park. 

At the northern end of the play area, the creek is quite weedy but the banks are currently too steep for successful revegetation.  Meanwhile, Council's Norman Creek 2031 Master Plan envisaged restoration of the riparian vegetation and provision of a nature play area.

In the last council elections, Cr Krista Adams promised a significant investment in this area to extend all the way down the creek as it heads towards Logan Road.  Now N4C members have walked around the site with Council officers and planning is in progress for a revamp in Glindemann Park.

N4C is hoping the creek banks in this section can be reshaped for a more gentle slope, and then jute matting or similar can be laid, followed by planting native rushes, reeds and sedges.  It will be essential to have a proper hydraulic study of Glindemann Creek to manage impacts of this work on water flow. 

After earthworks and bank stabilisation, community members will be invited to join us in working bees to care for the plants.  It should be a real transformation for Glindemann Park!  This email address is being protected from spambots.
