A JUNIOR play unit, new plants and an off-leash zone will add a fresh look to George Davis Park, located on the northern edge of Mossman.

Douglas Shire Council staff and contractors have been busy improving and adding to different aspects of the site, which is scheduled to re-open to the public on Monday, June 15.

Council’s Executive Manager of Infrastructure, Michael Kriedemann, thanked the public for their patience during the closure.

“Our workers have cut some turf that has been laid so we will need to keep the park closed over the weekend to give it time to set,’ he said.

“I would like to thank the public for their patience and encourage people to check out the new equipment and off-leash zone next week.”

Recent works completed includes:

  • Construction and installation of new shade sail
  • Installation of new junior play unit and soft fall zone
  • Irrigation repairs and upgrade.
  • New grass turf around play unit.

Landscaping works and new plants will be carried out as the park re-opens.

The new play equipment is part of the $525,000 Playground Renewal Program, which saw upgrades at 10 playgrounds stretching from Cape Tribulation to Craiglie.

The works follows the switching on of new decorative lighting at the raintrees, where more than 31,000 LED diodes automatically turn on at dusk and switch off at 10.30pm each night.
