Council invited community feedback to create a 10 year plan for Camdenville Park.

Catering for soccer enthusiasts, the park also includes a children's playground, spectator viewing, open space and a green background to the suburb of St Peters. The open space is a retreat for locals who like to walk, watch sports or play with their dog. Others jog, play on the grass or rest under the shade of the old gum trees. In the near future, the park will include a BMX Pump Track.

Capital Program

Council has allocated $2M in the upcoming four year capital program to upgrade the park. The Plan of Management is the first step in ensuring the upgrade works reflect community needs.

Remediation

Camdenville Park is a former brick pit which was filled and opened as a park in 1957. Extensive investigations have been undertaken in recent years into contamination within the park fill material. Remediation measures such as wetland areas to treat water quality and soil improvement will be integrated into plans to upgrade the park.

Subcatchment Management

The Eastern Channel East Subcatchment Management Plan 2011 sets out options for flood mitigation particularly at the May Street and Bedwin Road intersection which will be coordinated with designs for the park. Stormwater harvesting options to reuse street run-off water for irrigation will also be considered.

Heritage (Marrickville Council LEP and DCP)

The site sits within the Goodsell Estate Heritage Conservation Area which is considered historically significant, demonstrating the patterns of subdivision and development in the Marrickville LGA. The terrace housing that sits within the centre of the southern boundary of the site is also a listed heritage item of local significance.

BMX Pump Track Facility

The community provided a signed petition supporting the provision of a BMX Pump Track facility in Camdenville Park. This initiated a design study into the preferred location, size and cost which was completed earlier this year. In May 2013, Council resolved to provide a BMX pump track facility in the western end of Camdenville Park.

A pump track is a circuit for bicycles, with banked turns and rolling mounds of dirt. This allows riders to travel by utilising momentum to keep moving. Pump tracks are used by bicycle riders of all ages to develop skills in a low risk environment while also developing fitness.

May Lane Update

Following input from the community, the design for May Lane, St Peters has been reported to Council’s Traffic Committee and is going to Council in December 2013, the proposed design will then be on public exhibition in early 2014.
