Our Parks are free for us to use but come under the jurisdiction of the City of Gosnells. Only two parks belongs to Crestwood.
The City of Gosnells by-laws state:
- No hitting or throwing hard objects such as cricket or golf balls.
- NO horses, mopeds, trial bikes, motorcycles or similar
- Dogs to be kept on leash at ALL times
Maintenance and gardening are done by our friendly Gardeners Austin and Xenia, with a financial contribution from the City of Gosnells
The homes on the Estate are watered from the Estate’s bores, on alternate nights from October to May. This could be increased/decreased, depending on rainfall. The system commences at 6 pm and waters homes through the evening until approximately 1 am.
Every second Sunday a test run is held of 7 minutes duration, to enable residents to check their sprinklers. Please refer to the reticulation rotation schedule for allocated times. The Reticulation Timetable is altered every year.
Should resident need to inspect their system outside their allocated time, please contact the Gardener or the Parks & Reticulation Committee person if the required inspection is outside the hours of the Gardener.
Individual residents are responsible for the installation and maintenance of their own reticulation systems. There can be up to another 7 houses on at the same time and any broke pipes or sprinklers will not only lower your pressure but will also effect the other properties.
Should you not receive water, please notify either the Gardner or Committee person, so that the fault myay be rectified.
At the rear of your property, near the side of the neighbour’s boundary whose sprinklers come on at the same time as yours, there is a gate valve. This valve should be able to be located at all times. Should you need to close your system down due to a social function or repair work, it may be done by use of this valve.
Please Note: if the valve need to be turned off, please notify the Gardner or Committee member beforehand, if possible
Reticulation Map and Times
Our reticulation is due to be turned on in October for the 2019/20 season. Due to the weather and rainfall, the exact date is yet to be confirmed.
In attempt to meet our water allowance the houses reticulation is set for a 10 minute run, three times per week . The Sunday morning tests have been cancelled.

Vehicle Access to parks
To prevent major replacement and repairs to footpaths on the estate, together with considerable disturbance of park surfaces, damage to sprinkler systems and park lighting, the Management Committee has issued the following instructions:-

The bond will be refunded 48 hours after the park access, provided the paths are left in a clean, tidy and undamaged condition.
Any damage to C.H.O.A. property will be deducted from the bond.
