Our proposal for Little Manly Point Reserve

As part of the implementation of the Little Manly Reserves Landscape Masterplan (2019), we are upgrading the playground and providing public amenities at Little Manly Point.

The playground upgrade will offer a new and inclusive play experience, inspired by the local Aboriginal heritage.

The amenities building will be nestled into the bushland at the western end of the carpark and will complement the surrounding landscape. Existing plantings will provide screening from the road and neighbouring properties.

We want to make sure the playground upgrade and amenities building meet the needs of the local community.

We asked you to view the concept plans for the playground upgrade and new amenities building and have your say.

We also organised onsite drop-in session so that you could chat with Council staff about the concept plans.

    • Thursday 13 May, 9.30-11.30am (held).
    • Saturday 22 May, 2.30-4.30pm (held).

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the concept plans. The project team is currently reviewing comments.

Background

Little Manly Point Reserve is highly valued by many for its environmental, historical, social and scenic qualities. It caters to a diverse range of recreation activities such as picnicking, walking, fishing, children's play and more.

This project is based on actions from the Little Manly Reserves Landscape Masterplan, adopted in November 2019: 'Upgrade existing playground within existing footprint, with focus on nature-play activities' and 'Proposed public amenities'.

The proposed concept plan for the playground upgrade was developed with the help of a group of residents in Little Manly who started a community working group and have been liaising with Council about this project.

An arborist inspection has confirmed that two low significance trees may be removed to accommodate the toilet building. The two mature Fig Trees and a Paperbark will be retained and protected, with root surveys undertaken to avoid possible damage.
