THE Brighton Park restoration project has now been completed, with the final fencing coming down today (March 17).
Councillor for Deagon Ward Jared Cassidy said this was very good news for local residents, who have been waiting for years to see this work complete.
"This work was extensive with such a large area to remediate and restore after a lot of old landfill material was being exposed to park users over the past few years,” Cr Cassidy said.
"With significant erosion of the beach area due to the design of the rocky headland there, Council had to install a rock layer to protect the park.
"There is still a concrete path leading down to the water for access.
"The old gazebo was replaced and the cotton trees were trimmed to make the area more usable and open up the park to make it safer too.
"The new grassed area is a great open space for families to enjoy.
"Council invested around $800,000 to get this public space back up to scratch and locals can now get back down there and enjoy it.
"I will be working with locals to see what other facilities can be installed here to make this place even better.”
Work began on the project in September last year.
The park is adjacent to the Houghton Highway.
