Improvements to Rodney Reserve

A report went to Council in early December 2016, recommending to defer the draft master plan for Rodney Reserve for consideration as part of a wider Council Master Plan Review process, but to proceed with investigations for improvements to sport upgrades for the reserve. Council has requested that additional information be collected prior to moving forward with community consultation of sport improvement upgrades. This report is expected back to Council in early 2017. For more information, please visit the Rodney Reserve Master plan webpage.

Stephen Street Reserve Playground Upgrade

Council is planning some much needed upgrade works to Stephen Street Reserve Playground.

To ensure this upgrade meets community needs and wants, consultation was undertaken in October - November 2016.The feedback from this consultation has allowed Council to attain a better understanding of how people use the park, what they like about the park, what they would like to see in the future and more.

In light of the valuable feedback received, the upgrade design has been modified. Soon, a detailed design will be prepared, followed by the construction of the playground and park upgrade. This is currently scheduled to occur in the 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.
