A report will come back to the council later in 2020 as it considers the future of Kangaroo Park on Port Macquarie's North Shore.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council will take into account the site's complexity, including its flood prone nature, with all options being examined.
The council-owned land features eight individual lots at the rear of the site as well as a lot fronting Shoreline Drive.
The council has owned the land since the mid-1980s.
Council staff will provide a report to councillors later in 2020.
The Northside Progress Association's vision is for a Friends of Kangaroo Park-style group to manage the area at the front of the site for passive recreation.
There have been talks with the council over a number of years.
The association's president, Kingsley Searle, said the progress association was seeking a memorandum of understanding with the council.
Mr Searle said a low key plan would involve tidying up that front section.
Kangaroo Park, directly opposite the ferry ramp on the north side, is used at Halloween and for other community activities.
The council in September 2018 approved the use of the council-owned lot fronting Shoreline Drive by the community for place making and community activities, and approved the sale of the eight lots fronting Marlin Place and Dolphin Circuit.
A further report was part of that process to detail the progress.
That report due later in 2020 will explore all the options.
The entire site remains in council ownership.
