Victoria Park is a culturally significant valuable green space in inner Sydney, providing important respite for city dwellers including surrounding neighbourhoods,and students at the adjacent University of Sydney.
JPW were commissioned to design a range of improvement works to the parkland as part of the City of Sydney’s commitment to provide exemplary community parks and playgrounds,
Our design improved accessibility, activation and night-time safety. The works increased amenity with new seating, bubblers and park signs, a new space for active recreation and new decorative gravel concrete paths on worn dirt tracks. Importantly, water quality was enhanced through new wetland reed plants in Northam Lake to filter and clean the water; and better reticulation of the lake water. The upgrades to Victoria Park respect the heritage and archaeological importance of the park and have improved its sustainability and biological diversity.
