Witton Barracks Park Project Update

The purchase of the old Witton Barracks by Council for conversion to a park and community space was a key commitment I made to ensure our suburb has access to new infrastructure and remains a wonderful place to live.

Three important milestones have recently been achieved including:

  • The completion of the initial stage of construction allowing part of the old Barracks site to be opened to the public as greenspace;
  • The commencement of consultation on the draft Master Plan which will guide future enhancements to the site;
  • The announcement of $1 million in additional funding as part of Lord Mayor Graham Quirk’s 2017/18 Budget allowing further community driven improvements to the site.

I encourage you to view a copy of the draft Master Plan here. Your feedback will guide future enhancements to the site so I encourage you to contact me directly on 3407 0005 and at or alternatively provide your feedback in person by attending the Community Information Session on site on 15 July 2017 from 9:30 - 11:30am.
