Upgrade for Hornsby Park

Increasing community value

Hornsby Shire Council is about to carry out a significant upgrade of Hornsby Park that will feature something for all ages.

“Hornsby Park is one of our most prominent and valued recreation facilities, particularly since the opening of the new Hornsby Aquatic Centre, and this upgrade is going to further increase its value to the community,” Hornsby Shire Mayor Steve Russell said.

The work will include the replacement of the existing toddler playground, the installation of a swingset that includes a nest swing and the installation of a mural wall.

The former carpark will also be turned into an open space, a raingarden will be installed and links will be created to the adjoining bushland reserve and mountain bike trail.

“This is yet another step in Council’s commitment to rejuvenating the west side of Hornsby and bringing it up to its full potential,” Mayor Russell said.

The works are expected to be completed by Christmas and throughout that time access to the bushland areas north of Hornsby Park will be restricted.
