May 2020 Consultation:

In early 2020, Cumberland City Council consulted the local community to find out how Civic Park is being utilised and the general community aspirations for the location to inform preparation of a Draft Landscape Masterplan. Based on the feedback received, Council has drafted a concept plan that details the revitalisation of the Park and the adjacent Pendle Creek wetland area.

The concept design intends to upgrade and rationalise the park with spaces and uses for passive recreation, play and social gathering, and to revitalise the creek area providing overall enhanced public open space. The concept design has incorporated feedback received during the initial consultations earlier in 2020. The design leverages the natural features of the park and waterway to provide respite from the urban surrounds.

We had feedback from the community including requests for additional information, so we have added new details to our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). If you would like to learn more about:

  • The Maltese monument
  • Lighting plan
  • Tree and grass density

please check out the new information on the FAQ page.

Submissions for this project are now closed.
