We need your support to Adopt a park

On 21 February 2024 almost 40 residents of Emmarentia and surrounding suburbs attended ERA’s meeting to hear about our proposals to adopt the open space below the Emmarentia dam. We were thrilled by your enthusiasm, ideas and questions.

See the summarised proposal below

COJ-AAP-APPLICATION.final-draft.13-feb-2024

Now we want to take the next step in the long process by submitting a formal application to adopt the space. To do this, we need to show the City that we have the support of many residents from Emmarentia and surrounding suburbs.

Please show your support by filling in this survey. We want to submit our proposal request to the City by 14 March 2024 so please fill it in as soon as you can and help us by circulating to as many residents in our surrounding areas, in order to get their support as well.

Join us to make our area safe, beautiful and usable for all!

The area we propose to adopt is shaded with blue with a red border.

These ideas will be shared with the City but are not envisaged to be carried out by residents because of the high cost implications.)

  1. I think this is an amazing initiative. As a resident of Linden for more than 10 years and a regular user of Emmarentia Dam I rethink the more green spaces we have the better.
