Salt Pan Creek Wetlands
A Hidden Oasis in Riverwood
Salt Pan Creek Wetlands have been transformed from a once under-used paddock into a vibrant, interactive parkland for our community to enjoy.
Since 2004, work on the Riverwood Wetlands has been steadily transforming what was once an old and under-used paddock into a site that is fast becoming a popular recreation site for people of all ages, from toddlers to seniors.
It is now an ideal place to picnic with your family or take a leisurely stroll around the pond. Our aim was to turn this under utilised open space into a vibrant, interactive parkland for local families to enjoy. The reserve features a wetland with fish, turtles, birdlife and other animals. Enjoy the wetlands and come and have a picnic while you enjoy watching your children playing, riding their bikes and feeding the ducks and other birdlife that is returning to the area.
Families are already enjoying and making the most of the wetlands. Many have taken pleasure from a picnic while watching children playing, riding their bikes and feeding the ducks.
Native birds are also making the area their home again, bringing a real sense of natural beauty and serenity to the suburbs. The marvellous work that's been done around the Riverwood wetlands will continue this year with the installation of new BBQ facilities and playgrounds.
Stage One of these works comprised of the construction of the wetlands, walkways and cycleways around the ornamental pond, landscaping and gardening, a new carpar, additional automatic toilets and re-establish the community gardens.
Stage 2 of work involved the extension of the landscaping into the corridor area, the construction of the entry off Washington Avenue, drainage swales and the shared pathway along the corridor towards Little Kentucky Road Reserve. We have also installed and constructed: a Senior Playground, Picnic area, and Gazebo.
It's an achievement we can all be proud of.
