We are pleased to advise we have progressed the updated design for the first park upgrade - Brick Pit Reserve.
For more information on Brick Pit reserve, and to view the designs and concept images go to the Brick Pit Reserve page.
We anticipate work commencing on Brick Pit Reserve in early 2024.
Once work on Brick Pit commences we will progress to detailed design for Akora Reserve. Rabbett Reserve is on hold while funding is confirmed.
You can +Follow this page to stay up to date on the complete program of work. Or, for more detailed information on each individual reserve, jump to the park from the tiles below and +Follow the page directly.
As designs and timelines progress for each park, we'll update this home page and the individual pages also.
We thank everyone who contributed their thoughts and feedback on the plans for the three park upgrades – part of the Frenchs Forest Town Centre activity – between 24 March and 4 May 2022.
Support for the upgrades and the current concept designs was generally high with some feedback suggesting possible changes or enhancements and other feedback raising concerns over specific elements of the concepts such as issues with mosquitos, privacy impacts to neighbouring properties and noise.
Our Community and Stakeholder Engagement Report contains all of the feedback received throughout the consultation period and our responses to questions and suggestions.
We have commenced the development of detailed designs for each park, which will inform our tender process before any construction can get underway. This stage of design will take into account the feedback that our community has provided.
The detailed design process has started with Brick Pit and Akora Reserves followed by Rabbett Reserve. Site investigations such as ecological and geotechnical assessments will be carried out which, along with your feedback, will inform the detailed design process.
Our aim is to keep you informed of our progress and to invite you to have your say on the detailed designs and any technical studies as appropriate.
The complete program of work from detailed design to construction is anticipated to run through to late 2024.
We are upgrading three parks in Frenchs Forest as part of the planned infrastructure for the Frenchs Forest Town Centre. The upgrades will embellish the existing reserves and create inviting places for the community now and into the future.
We developed concept plans to help engage with our community and guide the designs. The upgrade of each park will happen at different times but exhibition was for all three concepts at the same time so that the community could have their say on any or all of the parks at once.
Further details and the exhibited plans for each park are available from the tiles below.
We are taking the community's feedback and comments into account during our detailed design stage. As we progress through the process, the community will be kept up to date on how the designs are shaping up.
We are upgrading the following parks:
Council has been granted $6 million from the NSW Government Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) to upgrade three (3) parks as part of the Frenchs Forest Town Centre. The Frenchs Forest Town Centre has been rezoned by DPE under Frenchs Forest Place Strategy.
The purpose of the grant is to embellish existing open space and parks within Frenchs Forest.
The concept designs were created during the Hospital Precinct Structure Plan development. They were designed to give the community an idea of what might be possible at the park location.
Yes, the community was consulted as part of the Hospital Precinct Structure Plan.
Council undertook extensive community consultation over a four year period to identify the future vision for the area.
Access to high quality open space and recreation areas was a key theme raised by the community.
Embellishing all three identified open space and parks will create a connected and welcoming open space network.
It will meet community aspirations for quality open space and recreation areas and maintain the area’s strong connections to nature.
The open space and park upgrades will meet the open space infrastructure requirements for future resident, visitor and worker populations. This was identified as part of the strategic planning for the area undertaken by the Department and Northern Beaches Council.
