St Leonards Park Upgrade

Landscape improvement works – St Leonards Park (Miller Street entrance)

Council is undertaking landscape work in the forecourt area of North Sydney Oval and the western end of Fig Tree Lane to improve the park. The result will be increased shade and improved access and traffic flow.

The forecourt works will take approximately 20 weeks to complete.

The works are part of the St Leonards Park Landscape Masterplan and are the first stage of a three-year program of improvements to St Leonards Park.

Park users are asked to take extra care and to follow the instructions of traffic controllers.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during the construction period.

 

Works to be undertaken:

  • Replacing existing lawn with granite paving.
  • Plant advanced Cabbage tree palms.
  • Plant low, shade tolerant gardens to maintain sight lines.
  • Resurface Fig Tree lane and new kerb and guttering.
  • Upgrade the vehicle passing bay.
