Stuart Park Elevated Boardwalk and Footpath

Consultation has concluded

Proposed Stuart Park Elevated Boardwalk and Footpath location

The importance of the city foreshore as a unique recreational and tourism precinct has been acknowledged in Council's priorities for many years. A series of improvement projects have been planned for or have recently been undertaken in Stuart Park. Council has recently upgraded the children’s playground and parking and is proposing to replace the existing Stuart Park amenities. Other works taking place in the Stuart Park precinct in 2016 include further upgrades to parking, pedestrian/cycle access and upgrading the JP Galvin Park picnic shelters.

A small stream flows through the edge of Stuart Park near Squires Way and currently makes the grassed area beyond the trees marshy and difficult to cross. Council is planning to construct an elevated boardwalk over the stream to improve both pedestrian and cycle access and into this area, whilst protecting natural habitats.

In addition to improving access, the boardwalk will link the Squires Way shared path to the children’s playground. This will allow parents to walk or ride to the playground with their children. The boardwalk will also act as a key nexus point for future recreational shared path around Stuart Park.

We're inviting the community to provide feedback on the proposed elevated boardwalk and footpath until 16 November 2015.

You can comment using the survey below or the form in the Documents Library, or pick up a feedback form from Wollongong Central Library, or our Customer Service Centre at 41 Burelli Street, Wollongong.

Council will consider all community feedback submitted during the exhibition, before finalising the design of the replacement amenities. Additionally, you can provide feedback on the elevated boardwalk project by clicking the link here.
