Public land

The following series of maps clearly show the extent of public land in West Ward. Apart from roads (owned by the Crown), public land falls into two categories: Crown Land and Council Owned land. Crown Land can be reserved for many purposes (e.g for a stock route in the country). In Willoughby, most (if not all) Crown Land is reserved for parks or recreation). Council owned land falls into two categories: Community Land (typically used for parks and ovals) and Operational Land typically used for conducting Council business (such as office buildings, depots and the like).

This first map shows the location of Crown Land:

This map shows the location of Council owned land:

This final map shows Crown Lands, Council owned lands and Open Space in West Ward. You can see from this final map that apart from the swathe of Crown Land below Millwood Avenue, the majority (if not all) Crown Land and Council owned open space is being used for parks, reserves and ovals.
