Proposed Community Garden - Anzac Park

Consultation has concluded

Feedback closed 15 September 2017

It has been proposed that a new community garden be constructed in Anzac Park - off Anzac Ave, Cammeray (in front of the Anzac Park Public School). Council recently sought feedback from residents - whether you support or oppose this proposal and to hear from those interested in being involved in the garden.

Overview:

  • Construction materials for the project are still in question.
  • It is yet unknown as to where in the park the garden might be located.
  • Other examples of established community gardens in North Sydney show that the area will need to be fenced and will require a structure for the storage of tools and equipment.
  • The garden beds would be raised to ensure that gardening activities are accessible to all members of the community.

Community Gardens are unique forms of public open space which are managed by community volunteers primarily for the production of food and to contribute to the development of a sustainable urban environment. They are places for sharing and learning about sustainable living practices, and for actively building community through shared activities.

Council recognises community gardening as a valuable recreational activity that contributes to the health and well-being of the whole community and provides a wide range of environmental, social and educational benefits.
