Notification of Construction works for
Manning park Stairs

The City has been successful in obtaining $100,000 to go towards the construction of a stairway from the southern car park at Manning Lake to the eastern lookout.

Views from this area are spectacular both towards the Darling Scarp and Cockburn Sound. The stairway will allow more people to take advantage of these views. It is thought that it will also be a popular spot for those wishing to exercise by running or walking up the stairs.

There are also plans to upgrade the eastern lookout in the near future. This area will become increasing important and popular as North Coogee and Port Coogee are developed. Formalising trails will help alleviate impacts in this area.

Works are expected to be in progress for 6-8 weeks.
