What's happening?

We are upgrading Simpson Park, St Peters alongside WestConnex commissioned artist Mike Hewson.

Council is funding and managing the following elements:

  • Picnic facilities
  • Playground paths
  • Cricket nets.

At the same time artist Mike Hewson is delivering the St Peters Fences Playground, under the WestConnex New M5 public art program 'Canal to Creek: A cultural Landscape.' To find out more and get involved in Mike's playground design for the park, visit mikehewson.co.nz/simpsonpark.

As users or potential users of Simpson Park, we want to know how you think the picnic facilities and playground paths could be improved. Please fill out our feedback form to have your say.

What happens next?

Your feedback will be collated and incorporated into the final park upgrade design where possible. Construction is expected to start in the first half of 2020. Check out the Concept Plan for an idea of what the upgrade will look like. Please note that precedent images are indicative only. Keep up to date with the project on this page.

The feedback will also be used to inform a long term plan for Simpson Park along with ideas gathered through a community survey in 2014. The draft Plan of Management for Pocket and Neighbourhood parks (including Simpson) will be on exhibition for public comment later this year. Council will notify the community when the public exhibition is open.
