Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park: Legacy Project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park will receive a significant upgrade, thanks to a $2 million funding boost from the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program.

The works will include an upgrade to the play space and improvements to the duck pond, visitor facilities and surrounding landscape.

The upgrade will be in line with the Masterplan for Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park, which was adopted in 2020 after two years of extensive community consultation. Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park is one of four district parks in the Blue Mountains, which means it’s designed for the whole Blue Mountains community to use.



Summary of community feedback on draft designs now available

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the draft play space designs for Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park. A summary of the community’s responses has been finalised and is now available.

Overall the draft design was supported by the community. The feedback and comments received will now help to shape the detailed design, and the review of environmental factors will also take place.

We anticipate work on the new play space will commence in the first quarter of next year. We look forward to sharing more about the project as it continues to develop.



The NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program is an investment in high quality public open space. Together with the NSW Government, Blue Mountains City Council is delivering vital infrastructure for communities to love the place they live. Blue Mountains City Council received funding for two Legacy projects: Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park, and the Corridor of Oaks and Jackson Park, Faulconbridge.
