Upgrades to Parks and Playgrounds

Waverley Park Improvements

Waverley Council has recently completed the construction of three multi-purpose sports courts, the re-installation of the bocce court in Waverley Park and the implementation of the Sports Lighting Plan, to ensure adequate lighting for the courts and sports fields.

Council is now about to start work on new Cricket Sight Screens for Waverley Oval, due to be constructed early September 2017.

Cricket Sight Screens Project

In partnership with NSW Cricket, Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club, AFL ACT/NSW and NSW Government, Council is installing new permanent structures to act as a Cricket Sight Screen in summer, and will have a modification to allow it to act as a Ball Net for winter codes. This will add to the safety of the park as it will reduce loose balls coming from the field during play.

Necessary remediation and upgrade works will be undertaken at Niblick Street Reserve from Monday 23 October and last until December 2017 (weather permitting). The remediation of this site is based on the recommendations of Geotechnical and Environmental Specialist Coffey and Sydney Tree Solutions.

Works are currently in progress and are expected to conclude in December 2017.

Barracluff Park Playing Field Returfing

Works to upgrade Barracluff Park's Playing Field are scheduled to occur from early November 2017 to late January 2018 (weather permitting). This work will achieve a sustainable playing field surface for year round safety, durability and playability.

The work includes the replacement of turf and the leveling of the field to improve user experience for the public and sporting groups.  As part of this work, the existing grass will be removed using herbicides.

While this work occurs, the site will be fenced off to ensure safety and allow the new grass surface to establish. The rest of the park will remain open for public use.
