Project Background

In 2019, Waverley Council received funding from the NSW Government through the Stronger Communities Fund for $280,000 to improve Varna Park. Council will use part of this funding to make necessary improvements across the park to bring it into-line with the latest Australia Standards for safety and ensure it is fit for purpose. Improvement works identified by Council include:

  • A new picnic shelter to replace the existing picnic shelter which has reached the end of its useful life
  • A new drinking fountain to replace the old drinking fountain
  • New rubber softfall pads below play equipment to improve safety
  • New edging to the softfall mulch around the playground
  • New bin enclosures with dog bag dispensers
  • Removal of old seats which have reached the end of their useful life
  • Removal and pruning of any un-healthy trees in the park.

After accounting for the above listed works, approximately $180,000 of remaining funds will be allocated to further enhance the use and enjoyment of the park.

As part of the community consultation undertaken from 17 October to 8 November 2019, the community were asked to contribute their own ideas for the park.

Community Consultation 6 December 2019 - 27 January 2020
Thank you to everyone who shared their ideas and contributed to the consultation for the Varna Park Improvement Project! We are currently reviewing all feedback received which will be used to form the detailed design of the project.
