About the project
Council is preparing a Landscape Masterplan for Robert Pymble Park, the parkland bounded by Park Crescent and Alma Street at Pymble.
Robert Pymble Park is classified as a District Park within Council’s Open Space System. District Parks have features that attract people from outside the immediate neighbourhood, such as:
- large open space areas
- unique landscape and heritage character
- a range of recreational opportunities
- passive shady places and gardens
- areas for play, events/social/picnic spaces
- toilet facilities and shelters
Landscape Masterplans enable the local community to have a say in the process of upgrading district parks. The masterplan process can identify embellishments that may improve a park, such as increasing recreation opportunities, improving access/inclusivity, upgrading facilities and integrating sustainability principles. Masterplans can also inform us about important park issues that may guide future management and maintenance practices. When a masterplan is adopted by Council, staged works can be planned and completed as funding becomes available, with the knowledge that all projects are in keeping with, and will contribute to, a long term vision for the park that is supported by the local community
The community were consulted on the Draft Landscape Masterplan for Robert Pymble Park in November 2019. This process involved online surveys, a community event in the park as well as online forums and other communication. Feedback received from the community is currently being analysed to inform the finalisation of the Masterplan.
The final Masterplan will be presented for adoption Council at its 17 March 2020 meeting. Those who participated in the recent consultation process will be informed when the final Masterplan is publically available prior to the Council meeting.
