Risdon Brook Park walking track partial closure - extended

Date: 13 October 2016

TasWater wishes to advise that the partial closure of the Risdon Brook Park walking track will be extended until January 2017.
The dam wall section of the walking track requires an upgrade to the hand rail and will be temporarily closed for safety reasons while this work is undertaken. The remainder of the track and the park grounds will still be open for visitors with signs posted in intervals around the track to indicate the distance to the closure.

During the works, there may be an increase in TasWater or TasWater contractor vehicles on the walking track. Visitors to the park will need to remain alert to moving vehicles.

TasWater apologises for any inconvenience that may be caused during this upgrade. 

Risdon Brook Park is the location of one of TasWater's largest drinking water reservoirs in the south of the state. Set among dense bushland, Risdon Brook Park is a popular recreational area and offers a walking track, barbecue facilities and disabled fishing bays, children's playground and toilets.
