With Council support, residents came together to form Primrose Park Bushcare Group in 1994. Early efforts by the volunteers included the removal of a privet forest that dominated the area and then managing the resulting weed growth stimulated by the extra light in the understory. Bushland management strategies used to rehabilitate the park included pile burns, broad area burns, crushed sandstone capping, community tree planting days and bush regeneration.

The dominant vegetation communities here are Blackbutt Gully and Angophora Foreshore Forest that are associated with rainforest type species (e.g. native ferns and vines) to form a closed canopy on the steep slopes below Willoughby Falls.

The two Bushcare sites at Lambert Street and Folly Point are separated by a narrow and steep band of highly disturbed land below Churchill Crescent, Cammeray, a refuge to small birds and other wildlife. Primrose Park is an important link within the middle harbour cluster of bushland reserves, part of a wildlife corridor for North Sydney Council.

We always need extra support, come lend a hand!
