Morgan John Morgan Masterplan

Project Overview

Help shape the future development of Morgan John Morgan Reserve, Glen Forrest.

Thanks to Federal Government funding resulting from the great assistance of Ken Wyatt $200,000 has been obtained to deliver improvements during 2020/21.

We are keen to work with our community to gather input into the further development of the park.

The park already contains play equipment, toilet block, bbq, shelters and linkages to the heritage trail.

An updated draft masterplan has been prepared which includes improvements at the western end to provide shelters, seating and a gazebo with a water fountain and three phase power for potential use at community events. A footpath connecting this space to the businesses and the heritage trail is also proposed.

In addition an exercise equipment hub is suggested for the eastern end and a fence with latch gate along the Railway Parade boundary adjacent to the play equipment area to stop children entering the roadway space.

History is an important consideration and provision of a Glen Forrest railway station history board is proposed together with the installation of two refurbished rail carriages. The rail carriages will be in a line with the train play equipment and near the railway signal post to give an impression of a line of carriages behind the train.

Additional tree planting and a gravel path link between the toilet block and community garden is planned.

Thank you to all those who have provided feedback about the future development of the park, the survey has now closed.
