How can a public reserve at Coopers Beach better meet the recreational needs of youth?

That is the question the Far North District Council is asking the Doubtless Bay community.

The Council is exploring ways to increase the use of the Coopers Beach Domain by the local community, especially youth.

It has distributed survey forms to residents in the vicinity of the reserve which is near a playground and toilets on State Highway 10.

It will hold a community meeting at the Domain on Tuesday 12 February at 4:30pm to:

  • discuss current uses of the domain
  • invite ideas about how the reserve might be developed to better meet the recreational needs of older youth
  • identify potential sites for a play area


All Doubtless Bay residents are invited to the meeting which will be followed by a barbecue.

Children aged 12-17 years are particularly encouraged to attend.

People who can’t attend the meeting can provide ideas via the survey form which can be downloaded from Council’s website.
