Background

We are seeking community feedback about proposed upgrades for Solandra Reserve in Modbury North, which involves the renewal of the existing playground and possible future installation of a public toilet.

Other upgrades proposed for Solandra Reserve include:

  • Shelter and reserve furniture, drinking fountain and Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant BBQ
  • Landscaping
  • New challenge trike/scooter/bike track with bumps (compacted gravel)
  • Small boardwalk with viewing platforms, interpretive signage and a nature trail through the established wetland
  • Streetscape upgrade of Ladywood Road

The development of a concept design for Solandra Reserve is part of the Dry Creek Corridor Master Plan which Council endorsed in March 2020 and follows consultation we conducted in October 2019 where we asked the community for their ideas about the Council-owned reserves along this corridor.
