Turramurra Memorial Park - Youth Recreational Precinct

Background

turramurra memorial parkTurramurra Memorial Park is an important district park and recreation area in Ku-ring-gai. Council adopted a landscape masterplan on 22 July 2008 after extensive public consultation with the local community and park users. This masterplan will guide facilities in the park over the next 10 years.

Significant parts of the master plan have been implemented, including the children’s playground area, shelters, war memorial improvements, Karuah Park exercise circuit, a new bridge and cricket nets.

New recreational precinct

The new recreational precinct includes a play area for older children containing a double flying fox, a spinning net climber and hammocks in softfall. Additional recreation facilities include ping pong tables, a new static exercise equipment area, a basketball practice area, seating, a bubbler and a picnic shelter. The park provides accessible pathways that link with the toilets, war memorial and playground. Funding for the work came from section 94 development contributions.

The precinct is designed to create a recreation area that is clearly visible from the surrounding parklands and streets whilst retaining major spaces and separate use areas within the park.  A number of small trees were removed in accordance with Council’s Arborist’s approval and replaced with new trees and planting. These trees will create a shaded landscape setting and offset any tree removal.
