Consultation closed on 12 February 2017

Outcome of Community Consultation

Published on 30 March 2017

City of Ryde received support from the community for the proposal to install a fence, however, some concerns were raised and Council has taken a closer look at the design in relation to these themes:

  • Concerns about children using the park if the entire space is fenced and it appears that the whole park is a dog off leash area
  • Concerns about children and/or dogs running into the surrounding streets or the Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre car park if the park remains without a fence

As a result of the community consultation, the new fence and park entrance locations have been designed to meet the various needs within the community.
