Margaret Street Reserve, North Sydney

Margaret Street Reserve is a lovely green corridor that connects the upper and lower sections of Margaret Street, North Sydney.

The reserve has 103 steps from top to bottom. It is amazing to have this green space only 200m from the 16 busy lanes of the Warringah Freeway. A group of local residents have been working together since 2011 clearing  and re-planting the area.  

The site has been transformed from a weed infested, overgrown site to a lovely cascading garden with many interesting sections and pockets of interest. Native shrubs, ferns and grasses make up some of the varied vegetation. Next time you are in the area take a closer look at this site, there are many wonderful plants, wildlife and birds that now call Margaret Street home! 

Council provides the group with advice, guidance and in addition, mulch, plants and specialist services such as arborists, carpenters and stonemasons when required. Gloves and tools are available at the gardening days or you a welcome to bring your own gear.

The Margaret Street group are a  friendly team who meet on the 3rd Sunday of the month 8.30am-11.00am.

The group varies from 2 years to 70+ years - all are very welcome!

It is a great way to meet your neighbours and become part of your local community.

Note: In the event of rain, contact the group Convenor to check if the meeting will go ahead
