MEDIA RELEASE

A new BMX and pump track, a half basketball court, grandstand renovations, and improvements to playgrounds and bushwalking tracks will feature in this year’s Hunter’s Hill Council capital works program.

Funding was allocated to priority projects at a Council meeting tonight (Monday 20 September 2021) for works scheduled in 2021-22.

A report was also received identifying potential future projects across some of the Municipality’s most popular open spaces, including: Bedlam Bay; Boronia Park; Buffalo Creek; Clarkes Point, Morts Reserve and Kelly’s Bush; the Henley precinct; Riverglade Reserve and Weil Park.

Future projects are earmarked for potential completion in the next five to 10 years, with planning carried out now to ensure projects are shovel ready for grant applications or any other funding opportunities that may arise.

For this financial year, a new bike track at Boronia Park will be a highlight and comes in response to community demand and as part of a Plan of Management for the reserve.

A temporary mound on site is already being well utilised by young riders, many of whom have been involved in the planning and design of the new bike track.

The Boronia Park Grandstand is also set to have work completed on its structure and external finishes.

A new half basketball court is planned for Buffalo Creek, where a playground upgrade is scheduled.

Harding Memorial Playground in Gladesville will also be upgraded, as will Weil Park Playground in Woolwich, and maintenance carried out at playgrounds across the Hunters Hill local government area.

An upgrade of the Kelly’s Bush walking track is included in the 2021-22 program, as are traffic calming devices in Crown Street, Henley.

Also, at tonight’s meeting the Council:

  • adopted guidelines for mobile food vending vehicles, following a public exhibition period; and
  • recognised the 20th anniversary of the Harbour Trust, the custodian of sites including the Woolwich Dock and parklands and Cockatoo Island, which has assisted in keeping these places in the public domain for community use.
