Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park

We are building a brand new toilet block and a fully accessible pathway at Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park, making it easier for everyone in the community to use the park.

These improvements are the first stage of the Masterplan and follow extensive community consultation. Works have commenced and will be completed by March 2022.

Disruptions will be kept to a minimum during construction. Play equipment and Blackheath Pool will remain open, and a safe access path will be created. There will be additional trucks in the area for delivering materials and equipment. A safety plan will be in place which includes speed limits for all vehicles. Please take extra care when arriving and leaving the park.

Update 19 January 2023

Visitors to Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park may notice changes to one of the garden beds along Prince Edward Street. Once building work finishes and site access via the construction area is removed for Council staff, a 4m opening will be needed alongside Prince Edward Street to allow mowers and other maintenance equipment to enter the park.

This means the shape of the garden bed in this location has been amended to allow for a new gate and access point for this purpose. The vehicle access will not be a concrete path, but it will be compacted road base allowing grass to grow back through, over time. The gate will be for maintenance access only and will not be for pedestrians.



There is a second project relating to the upgrade of Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park. This is a separate project funded by the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program and relates to the play space, duck pond and surrounding landscape. You can find out more and have your your say on that project here.

Access to the Pool and playground equipment is via a break in the fence on Prince Edward street on the eastern side, (up hill) from the construction fence. Access to the BBQ area is past the construction fence along a path on the western side of the duck pond.

Anyone planning a group or large family event, should be aware that access from the BBQ to the playground equipment is only by walking around the construction fencing on the road.

*Stage one of this project has been funded under the Western Parkland City Liveability Program, which is part of the Western Sydney City Deal (WSCD). The WSCD is a 20 year-agreement between Australian and NSW governments, and the eight local Councils of the Western Parkland City.
