Redmond Stairs Replacement
The City is replacing the stairs at Redmond Reserve in Salter Point with a new raised stairway and three viewing platforms to improve safety and access to the popular riverside nature space.
The new stairs will be raised above the vegetation and wider and less steep than the current stairs.
Works will include revegetation of the bushland using local endemic trees and plants to help prevent erosion and provide a food source for wildlife including cockatoos.
Redmond Reserve forms part of a Bush Forever site, an area of protected bushland home to threatened species of plants and wildlife. It is a popular place to enjoy a peaceful walk and is close to the hearts of many in our community.
The project will complete the City’s staged upgrade to the nature walk loop that runs through Redmond Reserve, which has included rehabilitation of the boardwalk and a second set of stairs at Sulman Avenue.
The project has grown from the City’s Clontarf-Waterford- Salter Point Masterplan which was developed in 2019 for the foreshore from Clontarf through to Waterford and Salter Point. The Masterplan provides a consolidated management strategy recognising the ecological, cultural and recreational values of the area.
