Improving Vine Street Reserve and Playground, Darlington

Upgrading the park and playground.

What we’re doing

The proposal for Vine Street Reserve includes:

  • new play structure to replace the existing one
  • new rubber soft fall
  • new stone and timber play elements, including boardwalks, balance beams, steppers and boulders
  • new gardens
  • new hybrid turf area
  • a new accessible entry
  • sandstone log seating.

We propose to also create a continuous footpath treatment in Thomas Lane, Darlington, on the junction of Vine Street. This will provide a pedestrian link on Vine Street, reduce vehicle speeds on Thomas Lane and prioritise pedestrians, without affecting parking on Vine Street.

How you can give feedback

Consultation closes at 5pm on Sunday 3 October 2021.

Why we’re doing this

This is part of our parks upgrade program. Over the next 10 years we will 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 park, what works and what doesn’t. We’d also like to hear any ideas you have for the reserve.

Next steps

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