- Tranquillity Walk, Miriam Vale
- Description of Works
Flying foxes are still occupying trees above the fitness equipment on the Tranquillity Walk. Historically the flying fox depart the Miriam Vale area in early winter, however as they are still present they may over-winter in their current location.
The fitness equipment will remain closed until the flying fox depart, but the remainder of the Tranquillity Walk parkland is open.
The Environment and Conservation Team will continue to monitor them on a monthly basis and reopen the equipment if possible.
- Reassessed regularly
