New accessible pathway
The next stage of the Wentworth Falls Lake Park upgrade is about to begin.
The focus of this upgrade is the construction of a fully accessible bridge, extending across the top of the spillway to a walkway on the north side of the lake, and featuring a dual level viewing platform.
The bridge and accessible pathway, that will be around 2 metres wide and span about 56 metres, will deliver an impressive and enhanced viewing experience of the lake for locals and visitors.
Let us know what you think of the designs via the mini survey below, by 18 February.
The new bridge will make it possible for the whole community to access one of the best vantage points from which to enjoy views over the lake.
The upgrade follows the construction of a brand new play space at the lake foreshore in 2021 and will be accompanied by improved pedestrian access from Blaxland Road to the lake in 2022 (see more on this project here).
The bridge is part of the Wentworth Falls Masterplan and Plans of Management, adopted in 2021 after extensive consultation with the community.
District Parks are high quality parks that cater to the needs of the broader community and visitors, offering a wide variety of activities and settings. There are four district parks in the Blue Mountains: Glenbrook Park, Butttenshaw Park, Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park, and Wentworth Falls Lake Park. All have received, or will receive, a major upgrade as part of the Western Parkland City Liveability Program.
