Recreation and the outdoors

If we as a society are to encourage people to live an active and healthy lifestyle, we must have areas available for this to happen! The social implications of the loss of this area should be recognised by the shire.

The reserve is part of a larger area of natural bush and trees, and is easily accessible from Canning Road. Bushwalkers and mountain bikers regularly use the area. Many people take their dog for a daily walk through the reserve, and kids play in the bush.

The Kalamunda Railway Heritage Trail runs through the larger reserve area. It will be within a couple of hundred metres of the proposed development, and the development likely be an eyesore to those walking and cycling along the trail.
