Randwick Environment Park comprises 13 hectares of parkland, bushland and wetland. The bushland and wetland provides valuable habitat for native birds, lizards, frogs and mammals. More than 90 species of indigenous plants have been identified in the park. The Park contains 3.6 hectares of Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub, a critically endangered ecological community, and is also home to the endangered Sunshine Wattle. The park, originally part of the Randwick Army Barracks, opened in 2010, and is cared for using our Randwick Environment Park Plan of Management.

BBQs in the Randwick Local Government Area are timed to operate from 8am to 8pm every day throughout the year.

The wetland

The wetland in Randwick Environment Park is an ephemeral wetland, which means it comes and goes based on rainfall. Whether it is full or dry, the wetland is home to many native animals and plants. Located in the centre of the park, the wetland provides a lovely setting for a casual walk, especially for bird enthusiasts. In 2022 a new section of boardwalk was completed that links the existing concrete paths at Munda St Reserve and Joongah St, making the loop around the wetland and park fully accessible to wheelchair and pram users. Here you can read more about the wetland and where the water goes.

Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS)

Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub is a critically endangered diverse plant community, which grows on 100,000-year-old wind-blown dune sand on sandstone. It is present in Randwick Environment Park and our bushcare team is working hard to preserve and  bring back the scrub. You can read more about it here.
