Protect and restore parks & reserves
Randwick Council has 2 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 Thursday of the month from 1pm – 3pm
Where - the corner of Alison Rd & Beach St, Coogee
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. As a result of ongoing works the section west of Carrington Road is now a well-established and highly valued local treasure. Increasingly works have begun to focus on the eastern section which requires work to improve vegetation cover.
Meets 2nd Thursday of the month from 9am – 12pm
Where - Adjacent 284R Carrington Rd, Randwick
