We’re improving this park to make it safer and more welcoming.
Works started in March 2021 and were completed in December 2021.
The reserve and the community garden are open. The south-western area of the reserve is fenced off to install a shade structure in early 2022.
For community garden opening times contact the community garden coordinator at [email protected].
This reserve is built above Kings Cross car park. To reduce structural and loading impacts on the roof, we will need to remove some of the soil mounds and 26 trees including many of the casuarinas. The trees will be replaced with 30 new native trees that will grow to replace the canopy cover across the reserve.
These works will also improve safety and sightlines into the park and will allow for more low-level plants and shrubs to grow.
The upgrade includes:
We will close parts of the reserve during the works. These will be carried out in stages. The nearest parks are:
We will take steps to minimise other impacts but there will be some machinery noise and dust. Parking may be impacted due to access requirements for construction materials and equipment.
