In progress: Landscape improvement works – Tunks Way (Stage 2), Jan 2021
North Sydney Council is undertaking the exciting Stage 2 of the St Leonards Park Master Plan. The landscape improvement work in the Tunks Way area of St Leonards Park includes the widening of Tunks Way pathway, improved lighting, low level gardens to soften the North Sydney Oval wall and moving the field gun to a more prominent location on the northern end of Tunks Way.
These works are scheduled to commence in January and will take approximately three months to complete. During this time, there will be construction vehicles in the park. Please follow instructions from site traffic controllers, signs and messaging boards.
Council will try to minimise disruption to park users. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during the construction period.
