Upgrade works for James Watkinson Reserve, Pyrmont

We’re improving this popular neighbourhood park and playground for everyone to enjoy.

Project Status: In progress

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.  The design was modified and in early 2021 we asked you for feedback. We used this feedback to refine the design, which Council approved in November 2021

What we’re doing

The upgrade includes:

  • retaining existing mature trees and planting 6 new trees

  • 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 and nature play area

  • replacing the barbecues with new accessible units and tables

  • 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.
