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.


Play space update

23 May 2022

Council has appointed Architects of Arcadia to develop the design for the new play space at Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park. Architects of Arcadia are one of Australia’s leading play designers – see https://www.architectsofarcadia.com.au/ for examples of their work. They will be assisted in the development of water play components for the play space by Civille, who are already involved with the upgrades around the duck pond. Civille is also a notable expert with a specialty in designing water projects, including water play. Their involvement will ensure integration between the two projects taking place at the park.

Draft designs for the new play space should be available for comment in late June or early July.
