Kingsland Forest Park Development Plan

The backdrop to Richmond

What is the Kingsland Forest Park Development Plan?

We will be replanting the Forest in a mix of native and permanent exotic trees, and improve the recreational tracks. This will be done over the next 20 years as we gradually retire from commericial forestry operations to focus on recreational usage.

Name change 

The Forest will be renamed Kingsland Forest Park to signify the change from a commercial forest to a recreational area. The Kingsland name acknowledges the efforts of Henry and Tom Kingsland, father and son, who were involved in the pine industry in Richmond from the 1920s.
