Aesthetic landscaping and floral street displays have become such features of our city, particularly in the city's 12 roundabouts and along the highway. New subdivisions are also being designed to feature outstanding streetscapes. Council is strongly focused on the needs of our city's younger residents and visitors. The city's 25 public playgrounds have all recently been upgraded to ensure that the equipment is both safe and modern. Several of the playgrounds are covered with shade cloth, and several were provided as a result of community and council working together to obtain funding and construct this facility. Extensive bush regeneration works and a series of pathways, bridges, staircases and improved picnic areas are being developed along the coastal strip to enhance this amenity. The Solitary Island Coastal walkway, linking up all the city's beaches and headlands is underway, and will ultimately become part of the Great Eastland Walk, from border to border, and possibly beyond.
