Consultation has concluded

UPDATE MARCH 2020


The Anderson Park Plan of Management 2019 (POM) provides an overall framework for the management of this significant park and identifies strategies for improvement.


Stage 1 of the implementation focuses on the south-eastern area of the park located along the foreshore of Neutral Bay and intersected by a pedestrian access link between Kurraba Road and Clark Road. Landscape Plan of the proposed upgrade is attached to this email.

In line with the objectives identified in 2019 Anderson Park POM, Stage 1 proposal aims to address the following recommendations:

Foreshore path upgrade – upgrade of east to west access path surface and edging.

Memorial – improvement of accessibility through an elimination of raised paving area, installation of low planting at the base of the memorial fence and seating, repair to the heritage fence.

Park furniture – upgrade park furniture to a coordinated suite of elements in accordance with Council’s Public Domain Style Manual and Design Code 2018. Refine locations and placement to be most effective and to serve park use. Minimise visual clutter through relocation of a bubbler, a light pole and seats.

Lawn – reduction to the existing slope gradient of the foreshore grassed space adjoining seawall to increase the usability.

BACKGROUND

  • establish an overall vision for the Park; and
