​​Council has undertaken an extensive restoration project to improve the natural condition in the urban creek at Prairie Vale Reserve. The project involved removing weeds and stabilising the banks with sandstone and locally native plants. Before the project began the creek was in a very poor condition, with excess weed growth​, degraded water quality and poor in-stream habitat for native wildlife. 

Now that the restoration works have been completed birds and lizards are likely to return to the area as the plants begin to grow. The plants and grasses have been carefully chosen to replicate the variety of native plants that were originally in the area and will be used by small native wildlife for food and shelter. 

A new pedestrian path and foot bridge were also installed to help open up the park and give better access for the community, while maintaining a safer environment. Large trees were retained to provide shade and to create a better visitor experience. 

This project was funded from your Stormwater Levy to improve the park and help restore the creek.
