Lower Poulton Park Remediation and Carpark
Works Start Date: January 2021
Works End Date: October 2021 *delays due to Covid-19 construction work restrictions
Location: Poulton Park, South Hurstville 
Funding: The project is being funded by the Domestic Waste Services Levy as the project involves the remediation of a former landfill site


Based on consultation with the local community during, and following the construction of the Poulton Park synthetic playing fields, Georges River Council has identified the need to improve carpark facilities at this site. Council engaged a consultant to develop a ‘green’ carpark, improving vehicle parking facilities for park users while enhancing the environmental value of the currently closed Poulton Park depot area.
 
This project will continue the remediation and naturalisation work started within the lower section of Poulton Park depot in 2016, and will involve the construction of drainage creek-lines/swales and the regrading of the site for landscaping and replanting of a degraded and unused site. The project will also focus on improving the community’s use of the area through the construction of new tracks and reintroducing the community to the area.
 
The construction of a designated carpark will limit vehicle parking impacts on Morshead Drive, while ensuring the socially responsible use of the area through traffic control devices and appropriate security gates to close the area following official field use. The carpark will provide 80 parking spaces, additional accessible car parking spaces, accessible paths and solar timed lighting.
 
Work commenced early 2021 and is anticipated to be delivered late 2021. During the works, contractors will meet all environmental requirements of Council and government agencies. During this time, the existing carpark will be closed to the public, however alternative access to the playing fields will be provided

Design and Construction of the Donnelly Park Jetty

Works Start Date: August 2021
Works End Date: October/November 2021
Location: Donnelly Park, Connells Point
Funding: Funding for these works has been provided by a grant from NSW Boating Now Program and Council Section 7.11 Kogarah Open Space Embellishment Plan No. 5

Georges River Council has confirmed Connells Point’s Donnelly Park will be receiving a new jetty this year, in time for the summer sailing season.

The current jetty infrastructure will be removed and replaced with an updated design, of similar dimensions, while the existing gangway and pontoon, which were installed in 2015, will be re-used.

Council consulted and collaborated with Connells Point Sailing Club, the primary users of the jetty, before obtaining a grant from Transport for NSW in July 2020. The grant, under Round 3 of the NSW Boating Now Program, offered a split grant allocation between Connells Point Sailing Club and the 1st Kyle Bay Sea Scouts with the remainder of the cost being funded by Council Section 7.11 Kogarah Open Space Embellishment Plan No 5. The purpose of this work is to benefit all users, renewing a valuable recreational asset.
