Frances Newton Reserve – new park created

We worked with our communities to design a green space for everyone to enjoy.

Project Status: Completed

What we’re doing

Creating a community garden at 222 Palmer Street, Darlinghurst overseen by a local group, and an imaginative play space for local children.

The work included:

  • new entry steps from Palmer Street and new park seating
  • a community garden with vegetable garden beds, toolbox bench seat and a space for composting or a worm farm
  • an imaginative play space including stepping stones, a hoop, speaking tubes, distorting mirrors, a rain wheel and timber animal play elements (2 echidnas and 1 wombat). 

Some of the foundation from the Frances Newton Preschool has been retained as a tribute to the site's history.
