What is in the pipeline
Skate Park, Grand Arbour, Community Garden
This design by local landscape architect Gerry Healy, reflects the history of the area as a vineyard and was first conceived in 2018 as the part of Gerry's Lower Area Master Plan (LAMP) design for DCRAG. The LAMP followed a year long DCRAG Community Consultation process as to how to improve the Skatepark Area.
Through successful grant funding in 2019 from the Federal Department of Health, supported by The Honorable Ken Wyatt AM MP, the key infrastructure features of the Masterplan have been progressed. Kindly taken on as a DaSRA build, the extension of the Skatepark (May 2020), the new Pump Track (January 2021) and now the Grand Arbour (June 2021) are nicely nestling into the lower recreation area. The Darlington Community Garden will soon flank the north & south sides of the Arbour. Subject to further funding becoming available, the boardwalk through restored wetlands and woodlands to the west, incorporating an adventure playground, and of course, landscaping of the lower area is also planned. The boardwalk, commencing at the end of the Arbour, will also assist in the Darlington History Group Walk Trail project.
