Randwick City Council is developing a Plan of Management for the City’s newest open space – Randwick Environment Park – and we want to know what you think!

You can help by visiting our special consultation website and telling us how you often you visit the park, what you love about it and what activities you enjoy at the park.

Home to a stunning wetlands area and a huge array of native flora and fauna, including many threatened and endangered species, Randwick Environment Park has a fascinating history, and offers a tranquil spot for a peaceful escape in our busy City.

It is located near the Randwick Community Centre south of Bundock Street and north of Moverly Road.

Originally part of the Randwick Army Barracks, and used as a rifle range and horse riding training ground during World War I, Randwick City Council was a strong advocate for the conservation values of the park, and ensured the remnant bushland was preserved and zoned appropriately to protect the fragile environment.

In 2010, the Commonwealth Government transferred the park to Randwick City Council, for the enjoyment of the community, and protection of its diverse flora and fauna. Today, Bushcare volunteers help maintain the park under Council’s stewardship.

A sheltered picnic area, playground, community centre and garden and barbecues are located in the park.

To have your say about Randwick Environment Park you can complete the online survey at www.yoursayrandwick.com.au/randwickenvironmentpark or pick up a postcard survey from Council’s Administration Building at 30 Frances Street, Randwick or any of Council’s libraries.

Surveys must be completed by October 5.
