Plans revealed for Robert Pymble Park upgrade

Published on 30 October 2019

Council is seeking community feedback on draft designs for a major upgrade to one of Ku-ring-gai’s biggest parks.

Robert Pymble Park – or Pymble Park as it’s more usually known – is located in Park Crescent Pymble. 

Ku-ring-gai Council is planning a staged upgrade to the park, starting with the public exhibition of a draft landscape masterplan until the end of next month.

The plan has been prepared following community consultation early last year. Residents were asked what they liked about the park, how they use it and ideas for its future.

Among the ideas put forward by residents and incorporated in the masterplan are:

  • Improved pedestrian access into and around the park.
  • A new playground suitable for all ages.
  • Accessible parking.
  • Improved LED lighting.
  • Sustainable drainage and planting.
  • A basketball half-court as part of tennis court upgrades.
  • Exercise equipment.
  • More seating and picnic facilities.

Council staff have also nominated Robert Pymble Park for a trial of a ‘Living Lab’ of selected native plants that over the years will monitor the effects of climate change on vegetation.

Council has invited the community to an event in the park on Sunday 3 November between 9.30am and 12:30pm to discuss the upgrade.

Families can enjoy a free BBQ breakfast, face-painting and an animal farm while talking to Council staff about the project.

The public exhibition is open for feedback until 29 November; click here to find out more and fill out a survey or make a comment.
