Improving Ross Street Playground, Forest Lodge

Improving Ross Street Playground, Forest Lodge


Following community consultation, Council approved the proposed concept design.

Works are expected to start in January 2020.

We plan to upgrade Ross Street Playground in Forest Lodge and invite your feedback on the proposed design. 

Over the next 10 years, we’re upgrading more than 60 parks across the City of Sydney, from small pocket parks to larger local parks.

Quality green open spaces are a high priority for our residents, workers and visitors. This network of park upgrades will create better quality open spaces for everyone to enjoy, help keep our city cooler and support biodiversity in our local areas.

The proposed upgrade to Ross Street Playground includes: 

  • improving access from Ross Street and Charles Street
  • installing new playground equipment and rubber soft fall
  • installing timber platforms around some of the existing trees
  • renewing fencing and screening hedging to buffer the noise of Ross Street
  • adding areas to sit and relax
  • planting more shrubs and grasses to attract native wildlife.

All of the trees in the park will be retained for everyone to enjoy.
