Consultation has concluded

Please consider the information below when providing feedback.

Located west of the city, next to the suburbs of Llanarth and Windradyne, Sawpit Creek Reserve will run north to south from Ophir Road to the Mitchell Highway. The site for the proposed landscape development can be seen on the map below:



The design, by dsb Landscape Architects, features an extension to the Kath Knowles pathway throughout the reserve’s riparian corridor, providing connections to proposed and existing pathway networks.

The plan details a proposal to provide pedestrian links and new park and recreation facilities, whilst enhancing and protecting the natural vegetation corridors. It includes designated spaces for passive and active use, with park seating, shelters, formal playgrounds, nature pathways and native vegetation plantings for the community to enjoy Sawpit Creek.

Additionally, the proposed planting scheme will enhance the existing streetscape interfaces and contribute to the rehabilitation of the Sawpit Creek riparian corridor, and critically endangered Box-Gum Grassy Woodland ecological community. The proposed plan includes a designated open space area that features a central irrigated grass recreation area, picnic facilities including shelters and seating, and playground equipment.

Draft Plan: The full landscape plan, including graphical representations to show what the reserve would look like following completion of landscape upgrade works, can be viewed in the document library.

Feedback will close on December 4 at 4.00pm.
