Help name our newly revitalised park

When Woollahra Council received a 1300m2 parcel of land from the old Scottish Hospital site in Paddington adjoining Dillon Street Reserve, we resolved to make the enlarged space an official park of the Woollahra municipality and undertake a process to select a suitable new name.

We worked closely with the community to redesign and upgrade this valuable public space and earlier this year completed improvements including a brighter and more challenging play environment, new footpaths, picnic settings, seating and garden beds.

Now that these landscaping and upgrade works have been completed and the park is in use, we would like to hear your suggestions for an alternative name. To get the conversation started, our staff have consulted several sources of local knowledge to provide a shortlist. I encourage you to ‘like’ your favourites and share your own ideas at Your Say Woollahra by 17 July.

National Tree Day

National Tree Day is a great opportunity to do something positive for your local environment and to reconnect with nature.

Join us on Sunday 31 July from 9:30am-12:30pm at Christison Park in Vaucluse to plant a range of native plants and help to beautify the park and extend the habitat corridor for local small birds and other wildlife.

All plants will be supplied by Council, along with gloves and tools. After you’re done planting, snacks will be provided and kids can take part in our interactive native wildlife program.

Visit National Tree Day for more info.
