We were engaged to enhance park functionality through a safer waterfront promenade with better foreshore access for pedestrians, park users and cyclists. This project involved managing two sites simultaneously during the busiest periods of the year while maintaining public access to all areas of the park.
Ramsgate & Wooli Creek, NSW
$5m – $10m
The scope of works included
Pine Park- Ramsgate Beach
- Removal of an existing foreshore car park.
- Improving park layout, including designated bicycle lanes/pedestrian paths and construction of two large car parks in the center of Pine Park.
- Installing park furniture and embellished picnic areas, including improved feature lighting and extensive landscaping.
Cahill Park- Wolli Creek
- Upgrading existing pathways and construction of new pathways, including lighting
- Installation of a fenced dog off-leash area
- Installation of new picnic areas with new park furniture
- Repair and reconstruction of sections of seawall in sandstone incorporating planting and flood mitigation measures and construction of two viewing platforms.
We delivered a much improved recreational resource for the community in time for New Years Eve celebrations. Temporary access paths and redirected foot traffic provided access for park users, while installation and maintenance of a detailed tree protection zone ensured environmental damage was kept to a minimum. Construction of a new sandstone sea wall along Cooks River was completed without the need to install coffer dam.
