The City of Mount Gambier have become increasingly aware of the health and wellbeing benefits that connecting with and exploring nature offers people, especially children, by way of learning and improved cognitive development. 

Council have identified an opportunity to develop the John Powell Reserve into a naturescape, to both beautify the area and increase outdoor learning opportunities and engagement for local children and the community.

The Reserve is located on John Powell Drive, close to the Corner of Maxwell Street and is accessible from the path which travels through the back car park of the Mulga Street Primary School.
The site is surrounded by a number of residential dwellings, with more residential building expected to take place in the near future.

Currently the site features minimal landscaping. A number of earth basins and a low natural limestone rock face aids the site’s primary function as a storm water collection area, and the Reserve will continue to provide this important storm water collection role.

To develop the site as a naturescape, Council propose building a small bridge and providing improved features such as climbing logs, rocks and stepping stones, a wooded area, waterfall, flower garden and wetlands planting, a sand island and signage amongst other things, to encourage improved local engagement with the site.

The City of Mount Gambier value your ideas and encourage you to provide feedback on this proposal.

So, how can you have your say?
