The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is seeking your comments on the Borthwick Park Creek Improvements Draft Concept Plan, which seeks to address community concerns in relation to bank erosion, water quality and access to Second Creek at Borthwick Park, Kensington.

The draft Concept Plan proposes some changes which will create safe access to Second Creek, tabilise the creek bank, provide additional native plantings, and eliminate stagnant standing water during the drier months.

The proposed improvements will further contribute to Borthwick Park being a quality open space by providing new nature play and passive recreation opportunities and increased native plant biodiversity and animal habitat.

 

Draft concept plan

The draft Concept Plan proposes to:

  • create safe access on the northern bank utilising rocks and logs to create natural steps down to the creek
  • stabilise the northern bank with rocks set in mortar to prevent erosion
  • place large rocks as stepping stones near the creek’s edge for nature play
  • plant new native trees and shrubs on the northern bank above the high water mark to revegetate the disturbed slope and provide habitat and amenity
  • remove the existing weir and infill the deep section of the creek bed adjacent the “beach area” to eliminate stagnant water during the drier months
  • undertake minor work to repair damaged or missing stone facing on the existing southern bank.
