The Duke of Cornwall park is set to be rejuvenated.

The once-thriving park has become overrun by weeds and long grass, and the tennis courts have fallen into disrepair.

City Council's Manager of Infrastructure, Paul DeLisio, said Council was set to put in a new irrigation system and replace the grass next year.

"We have also received funding to renew the surface of the tennis courts and upgrade the lighting," said Mr DeLisio.

He said Council was now focusing its attention on Sturt Park because of the number of Christmas events there, but once the new irrigation system was in place and the new lawn was laid in the Duke of Cornwall Park, Council would keep it up to a "high standard".
