Wentworth Falls Lake Park upgrades

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

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.

See a large artist's impression of the new accessible walkway on the north side of the lake.

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.

    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.
