Barracluff Park Upgrade

To ensure Waverley Council provides quality recreational spaces for the local community, upgrade works will be undertaken at Barracluff Park and Playground. The play area will double in size with nature and wild play, an improved playground, small multi-use court and tennis wall.

The upgrade includes:

  • New multi play equipment
  • New nature play
  • New hard court for sport activities
  • New furniture
  • New landscaping
  • Lighting upgrades

These works will commence February 2021 and are due to be completed by July 2021, weather permitting.

We will take steps to minimise impacts and loud works will not occur prior to 7:30am. Expected work hours and times will be Monday – Friday 7am – 5pm (Saturdays if required 8am – 1pm).

In late February 2018, Council engaged an external consultant to undertake an annual playground safety audits which highlighted issues with equipment pieces at Barracluff Park, which were beyond their serviceable life and required removal.  As such, Council fenced off and removed the equipment.

Since this time, Council engaged the community to have their say on what they would like to see in Barracluff park. Community feedback has been paramount in guiding our design for park. Based on community feedback, Council worked closely with a play equipment designer to create a unique play experience, especially for Barracluff Park. The main multi-play equipment will be a one-of-a-kind in Australia. You can view the multi-play equipment here . In addition, Council is determined to provide parks and play spaces for all of the community, guided by the Inclusive Play Space Study (find out more about the strategy here). Barracluff Park Playground will be one of the first inclusive play spaces in Waverley.

In October 2020, Council finalised the detailed design for the park and playground upgrade. Following a 6 – 8 week process of advertising, assessing, reporting and awarding the construction contract, we expect construction to commence in December 2020.  Construction duration is estimated to be 3 months.

In the meantime, Council engaged a separate contractor to build the Warners Avenue footpath connection from the Bondi Bowling Club to Old South Head Road. These works were completed in December (weather permitting). Please click here for information on staging.

We thank you for your patience as we work towards upgrading this much-loved community park.
