About the project
Council has prepared 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.
The masterplan identifies embellishments that will improve the park, such as increasing recreation opportunities, improving access/inclusivity, upgrading facilities and integrating sustainability principles. The Masterplan also guides future management and maintenance practices.
Funding has been approved for the proposed works which are planned to take place over a two year period from 2021 to 2022. 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 was analysed to inform the finalisation of the Masterplan.
The final Masterplan was adopted by Council at its 17 March 2020 meeting.
