Governor Phillip Park Master Plan and Playground Upgrade

Council will be upgrading the playground at Governor Phillip Park Windsor, with the playground works to be completed in 2018.

Hawkesbury City Council has commissioned an update to the Master Plan for Governor Phillip Park in Windsor.

The Master Plan will provide guidance to Council on how best to further develop the park. Whilst additional works are not yet budgeted for, the plan will assist Council to apply for additional grant funding to continue the upgrade of this regional facility.

The Master Plan proposes:

  • realignment of the car park to improve manoeuvrability and capacity

  • set-up bays along the access road

  • a new amenities block opposite the boat wash down area

  • a fish cleaning table (grant funded), to be located adjacent to the boat wash-down area

  • an extension to the Clubhouse to accommodate service boats and kiosk/café

  • replacement of the tree avenue

  • location for the new park entry signage

  • relocation of the Pioneer Memorial to a more prominent position

  • extension of the pathway network, forming a loop

  • riverbank restoration works including revegetation with native sedges and river access points for fishing

  • seating terraces along the riverbank (see images to the right)

  • a new viewing area from the car park toward the boat ramp/junction of South Creek and the Hawkesbury River (see images to the right)

Stage 1 works will also include a childrens’ bicycle path and items that will encourage balancing, climbing, sliding, spinning and exploration. This will be funded from a combination of Council’s capital works program, grant funding, and Section 94 developer contributions.

It is hoped that Council will be able to secure additional funding to complete the playground in coming years. Plans include a flying fox, trampolines, and swings, with a total estimated cost of $477,000.

Community Consultation was held on 3 February 2018. Thanks for all your feedback. Based on community feedback Council has modified the design to include fencing around the playground and we are currently investigating options for additional shade.
