Landscape concept designs: Council is seeking the community's feedback on landscape concepts for the parkland that will be adjacent to the proposed Queanbeyan Respite Centre on Agnes Avenue in Crestwood. There are four different concepts. Option one includes a central active core for sports and recreation, while option two is an informal circular shaped play space with canopy trees. Option three is a modern version of the classic village green square, with a central lawn and flowering garden beds around it. Option four is an organic natural play space, using rocks, logs and mulch surfaces.Have a look at the designs and have your say at yourvoice.qprc.nsw.gov.au
