Upgrade works planned for Robertson Park, Watsons Bay

In This Section

Council is preparing to beautify and upgrade two sections of Robertson Park in Watsons Bay. We encourage your feedback on the two proposed concept plans.

Robertson Park – Upgrade works in front of Dunbar House

The section of Robertson Park located in front of Dunbar House is a popular public space and is subject to high foot traffic. This has inevitably resulted in significant degradation of turf in the immediate area. Council is planning to upgrade to this section of the park.

The works proposed include seating walls, steps, reinstating retaining walls on the promenade, picnic settings, planting and returfing, providing greater capacity for seating, picnicking and recreation.

Construction is estimated to take 4 months, with a view to commencing works in winter 2018.

Written feedback and submissions can be made by email to records@woollahra.nsw.gov.au before COB Monday 29 January 2018.

Robertson Park – Military Road Upgrade

To provide an improved gateway to Watsons Bay and also address public safety concerns regarding the turning circle at Robertson Park and Military Road, Woollahra Council has proposed a landscape plan for an upgrade to the existing roundabout.

The proposal includes relocating the turning circle, creating a pedestrian plaza, adding more seating and trees, as well as orientation and interpretation signage. The works would provide greater capacity for seating, picnicking and recreation. The conversion to 495 m2 of public open space would also result in a loss of up to nine parking spaces in the immediate area.

Construction is estimated to take 4-5 months, with a view to commencing works in winter 2018.
