Waverley Park Plan of Management and ideas
To ensure future generations enjoy Waverley’s open spaces, it is important we have a sustainable approach to the management of our parks.
We are drafting a Plan of Management to define the major projects carried out in Waverley Park over the next decade.
To create a Plan for the park we need to understand how the space is used, who is using it, how they get there and where it could improve.
We have also created a list of suggested ideas and potential future projects that will make up the Masterplan for the park.
- Make the playground larger and refurbish the rocket
- New exercise equipment
- New indoor cricket training facility building on top of the Margaret Whitlam Centre's green roof
- New half-court basketball and hit-up-wall at the back of the multipurpose courts
- Improve path network
- Improve entry design including signage
- Improve nature trails through trees around the reservoir
- Improve drainage and levels of bocce court
- Review street parking to create drop-off and pick-up areas on Birrell Street for Saturday sport
- Reduce asphalt footpath and provide planting buffer between Bondi Road and the park
- Provide additional storage for sporting equipment
- New turf cricket practice wickets in the location of the current fitness station
- Improve surface of field three
