MARY Carroll Park is now home to a new set of seats to encourage visitors to spend more time at the nature reserve.

The seats are located near the May Street entry to the wetland and include a hardstand and additional seating.

The work was mainly funded by the City of Gosnells, but also benefited from a $2500 Stronger Communities Program grant from the Federal Government.

City of Gosnells Deputy Mayor Terresa Lynes said the wetland was one of the City’s most beautiful natural landmarks and encouraged residents to take it in.

“This additional seating is a small part of a larger plan for Mary Carroll Park, which will conserve and enhance the wetland for our whole community to enjoy,” she said.

“Mary Carroll Park is a much valued asset, home to a diverse range of wildlife and projects such as this will allow residents to connect with and enjoy the reserve for years to come.”
