Mil­lion dol­lar makeover for Gov­er­nor Phillip Park

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Gov­er­nor Phillip Park is set to re­ceive a $1 mil­lion makeover in­clud­ing new gar­dens and av­enue plant­ings, new park en­try sig­nage, bol­lard fenc­ing and a carpark up­grade which will im­prove traf­fic flow and park­ing ca­pac­ity for boat trail­ers. The project will be jointly funded by Hawkes­bury City Coun­cil and the NSW Gov­ern­ment as part of the Re­gional Re­cre­ational Trail En­hance­ment Project.

Sit­u­ated in Wind­sor, and one of the main ac­cess points for boat­ing on the Hawkes­bury River, Gov­er­nor Phillip Park is a well utilised park that is both a meet­ing place and a ma­jor boat­ing events area.

The Gov­er­nor Phillip Park Re­gional Re­cre­ational Trail En­hance­ment Project is part of the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Wind­sor Fore­shore Master Plan. The project will be rolled out in stages dur­ing 2018. The Wind­sor Fore­shore Master Plan was de­vel­oped in 2016 in con­junc­tion with user groups to im­prove the amenity of the park and to pro­vide ad­di­tional fa­cil­i­ties to com­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing func­tion of the park.

Ad­di­tional Coun­cil fund­ing of over $600,000 will be used for staged works which will in­clude a new play­ground, river bank sta­bil­i­sa­tion and new path­ways where South Creek and the Hawkes­bury River join.
