Improving sporting and recreational opportunities

We are planning to improve sporting and recreational opportunities at North Narrabeen Reserve (including the area commonly referred to as Rat Park).

The reserve includes Pittwater Rugby Park, playing fields, Pittwater Golf Centre, a commuter car park and recreation parking facilities. It hosts the Friday North Narrabeen Reserve Markets and a range of other sporting and community events.

We wanted to understand what's important to the community and invited you to share your feedback on the interactive map below.

You told us:

  • what you love about the reserve
  • what you do there now, and would like to be able to do in the future
  • your ideas for improving the site and its facilities.

We were also keen to hear about your experiences when attending events at this reserve.

We want to consider and balance the current and future needs of all reserve users while respecting and enhancing the natural environment.

Your input will help us draft a new Masterplan and Plan of Management for the reserve. The draft plans will then go on public exhibition in early 2023.

We popped up at the reserve to chat with you on Friday 18 November and Saturday 19 November. If you were not able to drop-by, or still have questions, you can call us on 1300 434 434 (during business hours).

Comments closed on Sunday 18 December 2022.
