A new plan for the management of the Kyogle Recreation Reserve is to be developed by Council in partnership with the community. The Kyogle Recreation Reserve is a Crown reserve that accommodates the Kyogle Gardens caravan park, tennis courts, Alcorn Park, the former croquet lawn, band rotunda, cricket fields, Landcare nursery and the riparian corridor of Fawcetts Creek. On Monday 11 September 2017 the Gateway to the Rainforest Reserve Trust resolved to commence the development of a new Plan of Management for the Kyogle Recreation Reserve.
A new Plan of Management is required to document short-term improvements and changes at the reserve as well as to plan for its use and management over the longer term. Immediate matters to be addressed include the development of a labyrinth, the restoration of the 101 year old band rotunda, deciding on a new use for the former croquet lawn and the development of more accommodation options at the caravan park. Council is seeking to collaborate with community groups who have an interest in the reserve as well as the broader community to develop a Plan of Management that ensures the reserve is managed and developed in the best interests of the community. Input from the community is welcomed and you can get involved and have your say in the following ways:
- September 25 – October 29 Send Council an email or letter telling us your ideas for the recreation reserve; such as what aspects should be preserved and what you think could be improved. Email Council@kyogle.nsw.gov.au with the subject ‘Kyogle Recreation Reserve plan of management’ or write to Recreation Reserve Plan of Management Team, Kyogle Council, PO Box 11, Kyogle, NSW 2474.
- Tuesday October 24 10am-12pm, Alcorn Park Drop-in session; come to Alcorn Park and talk to Council staff about your thoughts for the use and development of the reserve.
