  • Redefine Azelia Ley Road as a heritage spine or shared space for pedestrians, bicycles and cars with improved parking, new road surface and linking the European heritage elements on site
  • Prioritise the Azelia Ley homestead as the central hub of the park, with places to hold markets and creating a village feel
  • Promote the heritage of the Davilak Ruins
  • Expand the Alan Thomas Music Shell with better power, audio-visual and other upgrades so it can host larger events

The City has been working with the community and landscape architects UDLA since November 2016 to draft a plan covering management of history and heritage, to current and future events, how people and animals will use the site and how we continue to manage and protect this special natural environment.
