The Lakes (or wetlands) and their surrounding reserves are of Conservation Status and fall under the Beelair Regional Park Management Plan.
Because these reserves are managed primarily for conservation, each have minimal infrastructure with dual use paths, fencing and some small playgrounds.
From an environmental sense, the two wetlands comprise open water, riparian and upland endemic vegetation ranging in condition from excellent to completely degraded. We know they will come under increased pressure from visitors as the local population increases.
The aim of the Master Plan is to ensure each reserve retains its conservation status whilst enhancing passive recreation opportunities for the local community that are sustainable over the long term. With your help, we’ve come up with a draft vision for the future of this area. Before the Master Plan is adopted, The City of Cockburn want to hear from you – view the draft design and share your final comments by completing a short survey https://comment.cockburn.wa.gov.au/Lakes-Masterplan
