Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC), contractors will commence Stage 1 of the Sherwood Forest masterplan works this week.

The rejuvenation of the highly valued park will eventually see an area that residents and visitors can enjoy, with an abundance of native flora planted and nurtured to attract native birds and wildlife.

Consultation with the Gundagai community uncovered a desire to keep the park simple, provide colourful planting to enhance the walking experience through the site, provide opportunities for nature play and picnic settings. A pathway throughout the park was high on the agenda of community wishes, due to its location to the CBD of Gundagai, Morleys Creek and other recreational areas in close proximity.

As work begins access to the area will be restricted, and detours in place. Some exotic trees will be removed, to make way for walking paths and essential earthworks to be undertaken.

The site provides important cultural history to the local area, former cattle yards, and there is a desire for this history to be interpreted through signage.
