Wentworth Falls Lake Park upgrades

Wentworth Falls Lake Park is getting a number of improvements, thanks to Blue Mountains City Council and grant funding.

Everyone Can Play

A replacement play space is coming! The older play area at Wentworth Falls Lake Park (west of the pirate ship) is 22 years old, so it’s time for an update. Given it is a very popular location and needs to be replaced with a similar sized play space, Council secured $200 000 through the ‘Everyone Can Play’ grant which will top up Council’s contribution of $400 000. We want you to choose your preferred option, through our survey. Both options available have a nature-based style, with adventurous and inclusive elements for over 7 year olds.

The survey finished on Sunday 17 January 2021 and we will update this page once all the feedback has been considered and the final design is complete. You can still view Design Option 1, Design Option 2, Comparison Table and download our colouring in sheet for the kids!

Western Sydney City Deal Liveability Program

This proposal includes an accessible walkway over the dam wall, improvements to the dam wall to support that walkway, a new accessible viewing platform and a new multi-purpose shelter.

The project will be funded under the Western Parkland City Liveability Program, which is part of the Western Sydney City Deal (WSCD). The WSCD is a 20 year-agreement between the Australian and NSW governments, and the eight local Councils of the Western Parkland City.

Plan of Management and Masterplan

We are also continuing to draft a Plan of Management and Masterplan for Wentworth Falls Lake Park after community consultation throughout 2020. We still need your help to shape these documents and look forward to showing you how these plans are coming along, in 2021.

    Thanks for taking the time to complete the survey about the replacement play space for Wentworth Falls Lake. 

    Both options have a nature based style with many adventurous and inclusive elements. We would like to know which option you prefer. 

    There is also some scope for mix and match on the feature pieces. 

    The final design will take into account community preferences as well as being within the capacity of the allocated funding. 

    Please review Option 1, Option 2 and the Comparison Table before completing the survey.

    Closing: 5pm on SUNDAY 17 January 2021

    We have already had some great input into the Wentworth Falls Lake Masterplan earlier this year.

    We have drafted an early stage preliminary version of this document, which you can view here. You may find the Site Analysis and Design Strategies documents useful reading as well.

    *Please view the preliminary Masterplan before completing this survey*

    As we are still working on the Plan of Management and designs for the accessible walkway, we will speak to you later in the year about that. 

    This survey closes on Sunday 12 July.

    There are currently two playgrounds at Wentworth Falls Lake - the junior pirate ship playground closer to the dam wall and the older children’s playground near the new toilets.

    Funding has been found through the ‘Everyone Can Play’ grant to assist Council in upgrading the older children’s playground. 

    What we would like to know, is what type of new playground you think would fit in well at Wentworth Falls Lake.

    Further input will be sought as we progress the design.

    This survey closes on Sunday 12 July.
