  • Background

    19 days ago

    East Esplanade is part of the iconic gateway into the Northern Beaches. As a landscape setting, it provides considerable public amenity via its promenade, open grassed recreation area, significant tree canopy, and it is a popular meeting point.

    As part of this project we will be looking at the open space, the footpath network, trees and canopy cover plus the historic elements of the site.

    The proposed landscape works address several key issues at the site, including:
    • management of surface runoff across the park;
    • sustainable tree canopy growth and public recreation use within the park;
    • capacity of the public toilets to serve the needs of the public during weekends and during events; and
    • protection of significant historic elements within the park.
