We are preparing for the exciting next stage of the Wentworth Falls Lake Park upgrade.

The focus of this upgrade is the construction of a fully accessible bridge, extending across the top of the dam spillway to a walkway on the north side of the lake, and featuring a dual level viewing platform.

The accessible bridge and 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.

This project is part of the Wentworth Falls Lake Masterplan and Plan of Management, adopted in 2021 after extensive consultation with the community.

Let us know what you think of the designs via our short survey - by 18 February 2022.

The new accessible 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 tender for works to build the fully accessible bridge is due for release in February/March 2022, with work expected to start in April 2022. It is due to be completed by the end of 2022, weather permitting.
