Upgrade works for James Watkinson Reserve, Pyrmont

Project Status: Planned

Why we’re doing this

We developed a concept plan for the park and playground upgrade based on your feedback from our consultation in late 2020.  We then modified the design and in early 2021 asked the community for feedback. We used this feedback to refine the design, which Council approved in November 2021

What we’re doing

The upgrade includes:

  • retaining and protecting the existing mature trees and park character

  • replacing 2 trees with 5 native trees that have larger canopies

  • improving the turf grass area and adding new shrub and groundcover plants

  • renewing the play equipment for younger children and including slides, counter and lookout deck, double swings with bucket seat, nature play area and sandpit

  • replacing the barbecues with new accessible units and tables

  • a new bike rack and water taps near the barbecues

  • providing more seats and a new water bubbler with a dog bowl

  • new table in the main park area away from the playground

  • new link path and path lights to provide better access and night-time safety.
