Casuarina reserve

Casuarina Park's "Friends of Casuarina" have been doing some landscaping work this week - including new plantings. It was surprising how dry and rock-hard the soil was just a few centimetres down. Hopefully a little steady rain will come and give those new plants an early boost.

Of course there are some volunteer tasks that seem to never end.
Like the collection of twigs and branches that fall from our trees on a regular basis - and particularly during a hot and windy summer....

Ramp Work at CasuarinadougkMon, 20/02/2017 - 8:36pm

You may have noticed that David Read and his team have been hard at work installing a hand-launch dinghy ramp at Casuarina Park Reserve. There is more to do of course but what has been achieved so far is looking really good. When they have finished the Casuarina ramp, David's team will start work on a similar ramp at Water Street reserve. It will make launching dinghies and kayaks at these sites much easier and safer.

This project, an initiative of the Residents Association, has been made possible thanks to a Better Boating Grant from Roads and Maritime Services...

It is almost too hard to believe ...

After more than three years of sometimes not-so-patient waiting, the go ahead to begin work on two dinghy launching facilities at Casuarina and Water St Reserves has finally arrived. The last requirement, which was met just this week, was the receipt by Council of the Licence from Crown Lands. Just this one small step has taken almost a year and a half to achieve.

Council Grant SuccessdougkFri, 13/03/2015 - 6:10pm

Once again the Cove community has been fortunate to receive a small grant to improve facilities in the Cove. Each year Great Lakes Council invites applications from community groups for funding from its Community Grants program. With just $30,000 available the Council received 56 applications this year seeking a total funding of almost $90,000. The Residents Association was one of the 34 successful applicants with $1000 towards the replacement of the rusted water tank in Casuarina Reserve.

Over the past year or so Casuarina Reserve has been given a face-lift and has become an increasingly popular place for picnics...

Not so slow in the Cove

January 2015 in the Cove has been a busy one for public works.

Work began very early preparing the southern portion of Eastslope Way for sealing and this work has continued throughout the month.

Council's Manager of Parks and Recreation, Andrew Staniland and Senior Design Officer, Ashley Carlson met with members of the Cove's Boat Ramp and Water Access subcommittee to discuss Council's designs for hand-launching ramps at Water Street and Casuarina Park Reserves.

Once a central hub for many Village activities, Casuarina Park has in recent years fallen into disrepair and the once cherished gardens have become overgrown and neglected.

But a rebirth is in progress. The Residents Association, with the help of State Government grants plus contributions from Council and local businesses, has initiated work which will see this Reserve once again make a useful contribution to Village life.

Great news announced at the Residents Assocation meeting held last Saturday (13 April) that the Association has been successful in obtaining $25,000 in the 2012 round of the NSW Community Building Partnerships grants. This is the second grant received by the Association for North Arm Cove this year for works around the Cove!

The approved project will implement some of the Council-developed plans approved for the reserves at Water Street and Casuarina. To complete the project (works estimated to cost around $33,000), additional contributions will need to come from Council and from our Cove Community either...
