Eskdale Road and Fitzgibbon Crescent
Eskdale Park is a small local open space that was created by closing a section of unnamed road between Eskdale Road and Fitzgibbon Crescent. The new park will provide residents with easy access to natural space and improve the local area walkability.
A key feature of the park is a central seating area, which protects and builds around the compact green environment created by two large established plane trees. Footpaths leading into this area are surrounded by a combination of low level plantings, which incorporate water sensitive urban design principals, and shaped lawn areas.
This new park is a tangible outcome of Council’s Open Space Strategy which aims to identify areas lacking in open space and create parks, streets and suburbs where people want to live now and into the future.
