Hamilton’s historic and much-loved Gregson Park is being renewed.

Community feedback included a desire for more native plants and incorporation of Aboriginal culture, improved amenities, a better playspace and space for active recreation, and more spaces for the community to come together. The community also wanted to ensure the heritage items including the fig trees were kept at the park.

The draft Masterplan aims to celebrate the existing heritage of the site and Awabakal culture, while meeting the recreational needs of the local community.
