Improving Womerah Gardens, Darlinghurst

Improving Womerah Gardens, Darlinghurst


Council approved the proposed design noting some changes will be made in the design development phase in line with community feedback. The works are expected to be completed in mid-2020.

We plan to upgrade Womerah Gardens in Darlinghurst 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 area, 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 proposal for Womerah Gardens includes: 

  • new plants and trees, a raised grass area, and new stone edging for the garden beds 
  • removing and replacing 7 small dying trees 
  • additional seats and a new path across the park from east to west
  • repairs to the brick wall on Womerah Avenue 
  • aligning the pavement to improve access from Craigend Street and adding handrails
  • repairs to brick paving for better access to the eastern edge of park.
