In early 2007 Council engaged an external Consultancy to undertake a Tracks and Trails Feasibility Study in the urban areas of Smithton and Stanley.  In 2008 Council adopted the King Park Landscape Master Plan, Smithton Recreation Trail Plan, Stanley Recreation Trail Plan, and the West Esplanade Foreshore Park Landscape Master Plan.  The study determined the best ways for Council to enhance current walking tracks and relevant parks in both towns.
