The new Draft Plan of Management for St Leonards Park is now on exhibition (available in the document library or click here).

The draft Plan of Management (PoM) for St Leonards Park sets out Council’s land management objectives for the Park, addresses current issues and identifies and prioritises required work. It meets Council’s obligations regarding public land management under the Local Government Act 1993, the Crown Land Management Act 2016 and the Native Title Act 1993 and enables flexibility of use by Council and the community.

Further background information is available on the "background' tab below or by clicking here.

Next Steps

Once the exhibition period has ended, Council’s project team will review all submissions. A report to Council will outline the community’s responses to the draft PoM, and any changes needed to finalise the document resulting from the submissions. Once adopted, the document will replace Council’s existing PoM for St Leonards Park 2011.

For further information call Megan White, Council's Landscape Planner on 9936 8100.

In the interests of public transparency, submission in its entirety may be made available via Council’s website. Submitters are encouraged to read Council’s Information Sheet: Making a Submission to Council prior to making a submission.

    St Leonards Park is one of Council’s most significant and best-loved parks. Bounded by Miller, Ridge and Falcon Streets and the Warringah Expressway, this heritage-listed park has a distinctive Victorian character. Major park features include the Music Shell, the War Memorial and Tunks Fountain, along with North Sydney Oval, Bon Andrews Oval, netball courts and cricket nets. The Park features avenues of mature trees, scattered planting of specimen trees and large open lawn areas that lend themselves to unstructured recreation.

    The draft Plan of Management for St Leonards Park is informed by the following 2 significant documents:

    1 - St Leonards Park Conservation Management Plan (CMP) 2013

    The St Leonards Park CMP was developed to provide a framework for the ongoing care and management of the Park’s heritage, and to guide decisions about its conservation, use and development in the future. It recognises that St Leonards Park is a place of considerable heritage significance in the context of North Sydney and New South Wales.

    2 - St Leonards Park Landscape Master Plan (LMP) 2018

    The St Leonards Park LMP was prepared to guide and direct future work in the Park. Drawing on information contained in the CMP and the PoM for St Leonards Park 2011, the low-intervention design plan considers the Park’s importance as a heritage asset, sporting destination and public open space and shows how the Park could look and function in the future. Implementing the LMP will enhance the park landscape, improve recreation opportunities for a range of park users, ensure the park is accessible to all and address circulation and access issues for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles in the Park
