Centennial Park Concept Landscape Plan

Consultation has concluded

Keep it GREEN, keep it OPEN, make it USEFUL

Council unveils landscape plan for Bathurst’s Centennial Park

After extensive consultation with interest groups and the general community, Bathurst Regional Council resolved on 16th May 2018 to adopt the Centennial Park Scoping Study Consultation Report. This report presented overall community feedback for the park development in three key areas:

Keep it green: vegetated existing vegetated landscape and its enhancement

Keep it open: the value of public space within an urban environment

Make it useful: improve the experience of the current space

Council engaged dsb Landscape Architects to prepare a concept landscape design for Centennial Park that reflected these community views. The design concept includes the following elements:

Consultation area

Concept landscape design improvement

Green
  • The retaining of all trees within the park with the exception of some that are in poor health
  • New tree planting to keep the tree lined pedestrian pathways and add Autumn colour
  • Improved irrigated grass open areas
Open
  • Keeping the existing shape of the park with intersecting pedestrian pathways
  • Design that lends the park to a ‘passive’ and an ‘active’ area
  • Renovation of a cricket pitch including levelling, irrigation and terraced grass seating/viewing areas
  • Heritage style pedestrian vehicle mitigation measures
Useful
  • New children’s play equipment
  • BBQ area with tree and plantings surround
  • Curved Trellis with seating and climbers next to BBQ Area
  • Winding track with exercise stations
  • Heritage style smart sensor lighting along pedestrian pathways
  • Central Gazebo with seating
  • Heritage style furniture dotted around the park
  • Formalisation of the pedestrian pathway with heritage style red brick edges
  • Terraced stairs with incorporated disabled access
  • Relocated bus stop with improved access

A concept drawing and images for the concept plan is provided in the document library.

Council is seeking community feedback on the concept plan via this site or written submission to:

The General Manager, Bathurst Regional Council, 158 Russell Street or PMB 14, Bathurst NSW 2795

Feedback will close on Friday 11 January 2019 at 4pm
