Waverley Council is making improvements to Marks Park and the Coastal Walk to ensure we continue to deliver recreational facilities that support a healthy, happy and connected community.
The works at Marks Park will include:
Continuous access path - A footpath providing step free access to park facilities. The footpath will link the playground, amenities block, seats and coastal viewpoints.
Stair connection between Park and Mackenzies Point - Create formal stair access from the park to the coast walk and look out.
New Lookout - New accessible lookout point. The lookout will provide access to coastal views providing a similar experience to Mackenzies Point for all park visitors.
Embankment stabilisation - New native landscape planting to stabilise the embankment and prevent erosion.
Playground upgrade - New playground upgraded to replace old equipment and expand the play experience.
The works at the Coastal Walk will include:
New Fitness Stations - Three new fitness stations will replace old equipment along the Coastal Walk between Tamarama and Marks Park. The new equipment design has been based on the much loved and highly successful Bondi Park fitness station. The stations will offering a range of exercise options including pushup bars, dip bars, monkey bars, vertical pole, different step heights and flat and incline benches with various hand holds.
New Park Furniture - To continue to support users of the Coastal Walk new furniture will be installed along the route between Tamarama Park and Bondi including bins, seats and drinking fountains.
Upgrade works will start in early June 2019 and are due to be completed by September 2019, weather permitting.
During this time, the coastal walk, park areas and amenities block will remain open to the public. Only the immediate footprint of the works will be fenced off from public access.
