Wentworth Falls Lake Park upgrades

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Wentworth Falls Lake Park is getting further upgrades, thanks to the Western Sydney City Deal Liveability Program.

The proposed upgrades include:

  • an accessible walkway over the dam wall
  • a new accessible viewing platform
  • improvements to the dam wall to support that walkway
  • a new multi-purpose shelter

We are also completing a Plan of Management and Masterplan for Wentworth Falls Lake, to shape the future use of the park, and need your help to guide these documents. These plans will include the City Deal upgrades, as well as a broader plan for the park.

We recently completed community consultation on an early stage preliminary Masterplan. We also asked he community for their thoughts on the upcoming playground upgrade at the park.

Works on the playgrounds are not included in the City Deal Liveability grant, but additional funding has been found through the ‘Everyone Can Play’ grant to replace the old equipment located near the new toilets.

    We are currently seeking feedback on the early stage preliminary Masterplan and your thoughts on replacing the playground.

    When viewing the Masterplan, you may find the Site Analysis and Design Strategies useful reading as well.

    We are still working on other documents including a Plan of Management which will be formally exhibited later in the year along with the final draft Masterplan.

    To find out what a Plan of Management and Masterplan is, please click here to our Frequently Asked Questions.

    Developing Plans of Management, and finalising designs is a long process. Council is required to follow certain steps, and get approvals from other Government departments along the way. This can take some time to complete.

    We are also looking into the safety of the dam wall as part of the design for the new accessible walkway and we will let you know when we have more information.

    Yes, while works on the playgrounds are not included in the City Deal Liveability grant, additional funding has been found through the ‘Everyone Can Play’ grant to replace the old equipment located near the new toilets.

    The pirate ship playground is still in good condition so it will be left as it currently is. We would like to know what type of replacement playground would be best for Wentworth Falls Lake.

    Council is undertaking a comprehensive review of the Wentworth Falls Lake Dam.

    It is a legislative requirement and also in line with the proposed improvements for the accessible walkway over the dam wall.

    The dam wall will be closed to the public at various times over March and April while investigations are undertaken.


  • Wentworth Falls Lake Park: A district park

    Council manages 105 parks and 56 formal playgrounds across the Blue Mountains.

    Not every park and playground is the same. We have different kinds of parks and playgrounds, which people use differently, and need different equipment and management.

    Wentworth Falls Lake Park is one of four district parks in the Blue Mountains. District parks are large and high quality parks that cater to the needs of the broader Blue Mountains community. They offer a wider variety of activities and settings and are often the most popular parks and playgrounds.

    In addition to the different types and levels of parks, Council provides a range of different play types across our playgrounds and parks, to ensure there is something to suit children’s diverse needs and ages.

    No. These improvements are important and we want your help to shape the designs. Consulting with you will also help us identify other priorities for the Plan of Management, and all future works will reflect those priorities.

    No. The City Deal upgrade, and the Plan of Management will enhance the space and the way the community uses it making it easier to get around and protect the environmental values that make it so special. Our goal is to find out what you love about Wentworth Falls Lake Park, and improve the experience for all.
