Natural Playgrounds and Water-wise Parks

Water-wise refers to landscaping in such a way that reduces or eliminates the need for extra water from irrigation.

This urban design encourages using plants suited to our local environment. Care is also taken to avoid losing water through evaporation and run-off.

We aim to include these principles in all new developments and planting designs throughout the municipality.

By selecting appropriate, drought-tolerant plants, residents can enjoy greenery and colour all year around – even during drought.
