What we’re doing

The proposal for Bridge Street rest area includes:

  • new turf, shrubs, and 2 new trees
  • a new paved accessible path through the site
  • new low glazed brick wall
  • new bins
  • relocating seats to a more central position.

Why we’re doing this

This is part of our parks upgrade program. Over the next 10 years, we’ll upgrade more than 60 parks across the City of Sydney area, from small pocket parks to larger local parks.

We’re asking local community groups and residents for their feedback on the concept design. We’re interested in understanding who uses the rest area, what works and what doesn’t. We’d also like to hear any ideas you have for the rest area.

Next steps

We’ll report all feedback and design changes to Council and continue a detailed design. We will keep you updated on the progress of this project.
