Council contractors have been catching up with the mowing in the Park and clearing the invasive weeds in the lagoons. They have also advised that the toilets are to be upgraded to cater for the increased patronage – the work should be completed by the end of July. Work is also soon to commence on expanding the current playground and should be completed by September.

During the last 3 months the Russell Family Park Bushcare Group have worked for 103 hours doing their usual maintenance work (usually lots of weeding) as well as establishing 103 plants in the area on the eastern side of the middle lagoon. We are always on the lookout for help and can be found in the Park (mostly weeding) from 7.30– 9.00 am on the 1st & 3rd Sundays and 2nd & 4th Tuesdays of the month.
