Upgrade to Corridor of Oaks, Faulconbridge

The Corridor of Oaks and Jackson Park in Faulconbridge will receive a significant upgrade, thanks to a $2 million funding boost from the NSW Government’s NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program.

The Corridor of Oaks is a local heritage-listed item and is significant as a commemoration of the successive Prime Ministers of Australia since Federation. The land is also associated with Sir Henry Parkes and the prominent role he played in bringing about the federation of the Australian colonies.

The first stage of the upgrade, funded by the NSW Public Spaces Legacy program, will improve connections and accessibility throughout the area, and will include:

  • An accessible boardwalk between the Corridor of Oaks ‘Prime Minister Trees’, which will help the resilience of the oak trees by limiting foot traffic around the trees
  • Accessible picnic facilities
  • Formalised accessible car parking, where permissible
  • An accessible toilet at Jackson Park
  • Accessible paths linking the oaks, picnic facilities and the accessible toilet
  • Interpretive signage
  • Landscaping.

The long-term plans for the Corridor of Oaks will be determined through a Plan of Management process. Community consultation will be sought throughout the project.

We are currently seeking input from the community to inform the long–term planning for the Corridor of Oaks via the Plan of Management, and to inform initial designs for stage one of the project. You can have your say via our survey.

This survey will be open until Friday, 3 December 2021.

We want the Corridor of Oaks to be a treasure for heritage enthusiasts and locals alike. We look forward to hearing from you!
