Just in time for summer, the new boardwalk at Randwick Environment Park is complete and open for public use. The boardwalk, which was built in place of the dilapidated dirt track on the western edge of the park, completes the 1.2km loop around the park, making the walk fully accessible to all.

“Whether you’re a parent pushing a stroller, you’re in a wheelchair or a mobility scooter, everyone should have access to this beautiful green space in the middle of Randwick,” says Dylan Parker, Mayor of Randwick.

The new section of the track is comprised of a 73m long deco granite path as well as a 166m long raised boardwalk through the trees. Randwick staff worked hard to ensure there was minimal impact on the beautiful natural surroundings of the park during the construction period.

The boardwalk utilised environmentally friendly footings as part of the design upgrade, which will provide the least amount of soil disturbance and will be made from fibre-reinforced plastic, which contains 90% recycled material. The path has been elevated to allow for fauna and flora to pass underneath it.

“The addition of this boardwalk means every resident has access to the beauty of the ephemeral wetlands, the amazing birdlife and the flora and fauna within Randwick Environment Park,” says Mayor Parker.

Randwick Environment Park is a beautiful location that is popular place for families. It is home to Randwick City Council’s Community Centre and Outdoor Classroom. The park has also played host to Council’s Twilight Concert Series as well as the Nox Night Sculpture Walk. The addition of the new boardwalk will enhance the use and accessibility for all.
