Draft Corridor of Oaks and Jackson Park Plan of Management (POM)

The draft Corridor of Oaks and Jackson Park Plan of Management (POM) is now available for community review and comment via submission.

View the draft POM and make your submission.

Please note: This draft Plan of Management is separate from the current Corridor of Oaks upgrade design process, funded by the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program.



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.

Draft Masterplan and concept designs now available

The draft Masterplan, and draft concept designs for the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program works, have now been developed and are available for the community's review and comments, which will help inform the final designs.

The planned upgrades will create a new look and feel to the site, preserving its old features and character, but making it more welcoming and accessible for all.

The works in the draft concept designs for the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program include:

  • A new accessible board walk between the Corridor of Prime Ministers’ Oaks
  • Interpretation of indigenous and non-indigenous stories of relevance to the site
  • Accessible parking
  • Pedestrian crossing between Jackson Park and the Corridor of Oaks
  • Replacement of the toilet block at Jackson Park
  • Improved seating and landscaping, and picnic facilities

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    This survey is about the Draft Masterplan for the Corridor of Oaks and Jackson Park, and the draft concept designs for the upgrade works being provided under the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program.

    A Masterplan is a detailed plan that guides future design and development for public spaces. It outlines developments which improve function and access; recognises, respects and enhances the existing character; and facilitate social activity and amenity for both residents and visitors. Details and exact layout are worked out once funding is identified. Masterplans must be endorsed by Council.

    The NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program is a NSW Government initiative that supports councils to deliver more, and better public spaces across the state.
