Previous consultation for Civic Park and Pendle Creek Wetland Masterplan

October 2022 update:

The tender for the RFx-247 Civic Park & Pendle Creek Wetland Improvement Project was advertised on Thursday 29/09/22.

May 2020 Stage 2 Consultation:

Based on the feedback received, Council 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 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.

February 2020 Stage 1 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.
