Parks and Reserves Works

The City aims to provide and maintain high quality facilities for the local and wider community that support amenity, sport, recreation and biodiversity outcomes. 

The City’s parks and reserves are being progressively hydro-zoned and eco-zoned to conserve water. The City is provided an allocation by the Department of Water and has to operate within that allocation while still maintaining parks and reserves for the community to use and enjoy. 

Hydro-zoning is the practice of grouping types of vegetation into categories with similar water requirements to enable more efficient and responsible use of irrigation water. When designing and managing POS, the different water needs of turf, lawns, trees and low water-use plants are taken into account. Eco-zoning is the conversion of existing turfed areas into native garden areas. Ultimately this allows for minimal water to support an area that once sustained turf, saving large volumes of water.

The City also facilitates effective management of the Swan and Canning River foreshores and improves the amenity value and sustainable uses of all our public open spaces and foreshores.
