Youth Recreation Area at Rushcutters Bay Park

Consultation has concluded. Please register with Our Woollahra Your Say to receive updates on this and future community engagements.

We’d love your feedback on our plan for the Youth Recreation Area which includes:

• A new location away from the harbour foreshore and below the embankment of New South Head Road to minimise noise and retain harbour views

• A basketball practice area and a series of skate and scooter elements designed for 8-14 year olds

• Landscaping including new trees and garden beds

• Improved seating, shade shelter, bike racks, a water bubbler and waste bins.

The plans include no floodlighting and no trees will be removed.

This revised plan provides convenient options for local kids to have fun and places for parents, carers and park users to meet, relax and enjoy the area. We are keen to encourage all members of the community to make the most of our open spaces. Please share your feedback below by completing our online survey before 31 August 2018.

Background:

Following extensive research and community consultation, the need for a Youth Recreation Area to accommodate young people aged 8-14 years within the Woollahra Local Government Area was identified.

In response to community feedback received as part of the public exhibition of a previous consulted design for a youth recreation area within Rushcutters Bay Park, Council resolved to develop revised plans for an alternative location within the Park.

Amended concept plans, which have taken into consideration concerns raised regarding design, include:

  • A new location in the Park’s south western corner, situated away from the harbour foreshore, below the embankment of New South Head Road, to minimise noise and preserve views;
  • A basketball practice area and a series of skate and scooter elements to provide multiple activity options for 8-14 year olds;
  • Landscaping including additional new tree plantings, with additional garden beds sympathetic to the surroundings;
  • Improved seating, shade shelter, bike racks and rubbish bins;
  • No night floodlighting, to minimise after-hours disruption to nearby properties;
  • Allocation of 2% of the Park’s space to the Facility – approximately 875m2 , compared to the park’s total area of 53,843m2

Young people make up a considerable portion of our community (12%). Woollahra Council is especially keen to hear what young people think of the concept plan.

Please take a moment to watch the short video that provides a fly-through experience of the new design.
