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
