Belgrave Street Reserve Upgrade

Belgrave Street Reserve, Bronte

We're upgrading Belgrave Street Reserve to improve the play space and park area.

The upgrade will include:

  • Improving the turf and increasing the size of the lawn
  • Providing nature play which incorporates natural materials
  • Increasing the area of the park by moving the fence further towards the street edge and increasing planting in the street verge
  • Providing imaginative play elements
  • Improving the current play experience by installing new equipment
  • New bin
  • Improving path entries
  • Increasing planting
  • Removing the concrete slab next to the park and replacing it with planting (this will not impact the functionality of the driveway)

Construction

Council has engaged GJ’s Landscapes to complete this upgrade. Construction will start on Monday 26 September and works are expected to take six weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Work hours will be from 7am–5pm, Monday to Friday and 8am–1pm on Saturdays. During construction, the park will be closed and temporary fencing will be installed around the perimeter.

If you have any queries regarding this work, please contact Kirk Brunskill from GJ’s Landscapes on 0407 721 021. Alternatively, you can get in touch with our Major Projects team at 9083 8000 or by emailing majorprojects@waverley.nsw.gov.au

We apologise for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you to the upgraded park soon.

Community consultation outcomes

Early in 2021 Council asked park users what they wanted to see in the park upgrade. Based on this feedback, a concept design was developed and made available for a second round of consultation which ran from 25 November to 23 December 2021.

Feedback indicated that 70% of respondents were ‘very supportive or supportive' of the suggested design. Some suggestions called for minor changes to the design including a more consolidated play area to allow for an additional table and seat, and a gate at the southern end of the park.

More information, along with the consultation report, is available on our Have Your Say website.
