About the Project

Viola Desmond Park, previously known as Hupfield Park, was renamed in 2018 as part of a local community initiative. As part of this initiative, community members identified certain areas of the park as being in need of an upgrade. The City is working with the local Councillor and community to determine the most appropriate improvements. The overall scope of work will be developed through consultation with the community.
