Protect and restore parks & reserves
Randwick Council has 4 Parkcare groups who work with Council’s Bushcare Officer to create areas of habitat within Council parks and reserves. Parkcare volunteers plant both Australian natives as well as local indigenous plants. These groups are best suited to volunteers who prefer more of a relaxed gardening experience.
Alison Road (Coogee)
Located at the northern end of Coogee this site began as a weedy rubble heap. The tireless effort of a small volunteer base has transformed it into an excellent example of a native garden. Work continues to battle persistent weeds and add to the native plantings whenever we can.
Meets 4th Wednesday of the month from 8am – 10am
Where - the corner of Alison Rd & Beach St, Coogee
Clyde Street (Randwick)
Hidden oasis located within the heart of Randwick. Previous works have seen large coral trees removed and replaced with a diversity of native shrubs and groundcovers to add variety and interest to this small street side reserve. Regular activities include hand weeding, mulching, erosion control and planting.
Meets 1st Saturday of the month from 1pm – 3pm
Where - Southern end of Clyde St, Randwick
Old Tramline (Randwick)
Located along a historical tram route this narrow park provides a pleasant spot for visitors to walk through or even have a picnic. The park contains a variety of plants of all different shapes, sizes and textures providing plenty of visual appeal. Volunteers regularly prune vegetation and mulch garden beds to keep things looking in top shape.
Meets 2nd Thursday of the month from 8am – 10am
Where - the reserve between Dudley St & Carrington Rd, Randwick
Tramway Park (Coogee)
Located on the eastern side of Carrington Road this narrow park is gradually being transformed into a beautiful native thoroughfare. This social group take great pride in creating new garden beds, planting natives, mulching and the odd bit of weeding. They like to work hard whilst not taking themselves too seriously.
Meets 2nd Thursday of the month from 10am – 12pm
Where - the reserve between Carrington Rd & Melody Street, Coogee
